Local HUB to offer cylinder exchange with no fees and top buyback rates for R-22
June 14, 2017
Diversified Pure Chem has opened a new hub facility in Jacksonville, Florida, to offer small cylinder exchange and refrigerant buyback services. With the Jacksonville addition, Pure Chem now has multiple facilities to service HVACR and industrial businesses throughout the Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa, and Miami markets.
Of course, reclaimers can only reclaim what contractors and technicians recover, and while the R-22 numbers may never match the hoped-for projections, the industry is already looking to the future and preparing to address new challenges in a post-hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) world that also is likely facing a phasedown of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
Proactive HVAC contractors have been working to educate their employees and clients on the inevitable phaseout. And, with the price of R-22 already starting to rise in many areas, educated contractors are finding it easier to convince customers to replace aging R-22 units with newer, more efficient models.
