The Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) is conducting a survey to investigate issues with pair coil.
There have been reports of ant nesting and corrosion problems with pair coils, resulting in the leaking of refrigerant.
DCCEEW notes that under consumer guarantee law this issue could be costing businesses time and money to rectify complications associated with leaking pair coils.
“In addition, leaked refrigerant gases can impact the upper atmosphere for up to 30 years,” says DCCEEW. “These emissions have a negative impact on the environment and human health.”
Potential factors related to pair coil issues may include environmental factors, changes to installation practices, and possible design differences between air conditioning systems.
The department’s recently established Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Steering Committee is seeking to support industry to identify whether there is an issue with pair coils via a survey. The survey asks professionals in the refrigeration and air conditioning sector to provide information on the circumstances of any pair coil issues encountered.
