ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) announced the relaunch of a website, www.phaseoutfacts.org, intended to keep industry professionals and equipment owners informed on the phaseout of ozone depleting refrigerants.

“Phaseoutfacts.org is a one-stop-shop for information and deadlines on the refrigerant phaseout, as well as important safety information,” said Stephen Yurek, AHRI president and CEO. “We hope this site serves as a valuable tool for homeowners, business owners, technicians, and manufacturers.”

The website includes detailed information on refrigerants, and the history of the Clean Air Act. The Contractors and Technicians section contains updates on sales restrictions and changes in how contractors service and dispose of systems and refrigerants. Information on residential and commercial air conditioning, as well as commercial refrigeration, is listed under the Equipment Owners section.

Business owners can view a checklist to help them comply with federal and state laws regulating refrigerant emissions.
