The Beijer Ref group has announced further increases of 40% on R404A, and 30% on other HFCs, from July 1 through its Dean & Wood, HRP and RW outlets, while FSW has announced a 50% increase on R404A. Climate Center is believed to have imposed similar increases.
With the market price of R404A now exceeding the price of medium GWP alternatives like R448A and R449A, many are questioning why equipment using R404A is still selling in such high quantities.
Peter Dinnage, technical director of refrigerant supplier Climalife, maintains that there should be no need to still be using R404A in new equipment and warns of difficult times ahead for those still using that refrigerant.
