IRS are proud to announce, we have recently completed our Maiden R32 Air Conditioning Installation at the University of Wolverhampton.

With the “phase down” approaching for the use on high GWP refrigerants, IRS are committed to provide our clients with the best possible solution, ensuring longevity without compromising output. Over recent times (since 2006,) the comfort cooling market moved to R410A refrigerant as it offered higher efficiencies that its predecessor R407c, achieved by operating at higher pressures. As a comparison R32 has a GWP rating of 675, compared to a GWP of 2088 for R410a, a two-thirds reduction…

Moving Forward

Although the current range of R32 equipment is limited to units up to 14kW, as we move into 2018 equipment manufacturers will be rolling out R32 to larger systems including VRV’s.

Steve Cocks, Energy Manager, University of Wolverhampton: “We are always happy to consider new technology and as a University, reducing our carbon footprint is a major objective”
