Normally getting an ‘F’ grade is associated with failure or coming bottom of the class (all those times you may have hidden your school report card from your expectant parents might spring to mind!) But if you’re a business, however big or small, or even a one man/woman band that installs, maintains or services heat pump, air conditioning or refrigeration equipment that contains or is designed to contain F-Gas refrigerants without being F-Gas compliant, you are on the wrong side of the law.
F-Gas stands for fluorinated greenhouse gases, a man-made gas that contributes to the global greenhouse effect. Many of refrigeration, A/C and heat pump systems contain hydrofluorocarbons (one of the four types of F-Gases).
From July 2011, the UK Government made it so that any business that didn’t have a valid and full F-Gas Certificate for their company must apply for Stationary Equipment Qualification Company Certificate (Full Certificate) immediately.
At Michael Ward Ltd, we know it’s always best to stay on the law’s good side (in general life as well as business!) which is why we ensure your company is fully F-Gas Compliant so it ticks all the legal boxes. We do this automatically if you’re one of our customers, with our reliable refrigeration service software generating all your compliance certificates as part of your service plan with us.
