Life-Cycle Replacement

Discover the perfect upgrade for your HCFC phase-out

Your existing unit may soon need to be replaced either because it’s reaching the end of its operating life or because of the impending HCFC phase out. The question is: how can you quickly and easily replace these units with an equally dependable system, which is far more cost-efficient?

The answer is APAC’s commercial and industrial range which includes model ranging from 12kW to 95kW capacity. We manufacture a range of units that are a perfect upgrade for existing units, offering better energy efficiency, reliability and longer lasting.

The below chart gives an indication of our superior efficiency compared to some of our competitors.

The Perfect Upgrade

There are several advantages to replacing your outdated and aging air conditioning units, including:

Low Operating Costs

Our APAC range pushes the boundary in high efficiency ratings so you can enjoy better energy savings, hence lowering your power bills significantly. 

Low Cost of Ownership

High efficiency direct drive fans ensure low ongoing maintenance costs.

Longer Lasting

Engineered and built to operate in world's toughest conditions.

HCFC Phase Out

The Montreal Protocol is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of ozone depleting subtances, and Malaysia being one of the countries that has ratified the Kigali amendment under this treaty.

Following this, the Malaysia’s Department of Environment (DOE) has implemented Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) Phase Out Management Plan (HPMP) including R22, which prohibits its usage and thus gradually be phased out in stages.

With this ongoing reduction of R22 availability, obtaining the refrigerant for equipment maintenance is becoming increasingly difficult and costly. Therefore makes perfect sense to replace your aging unit with a more cost effective and sustainable model.

Approximately 30% of all working air conditioners and refrigeration systems use R22 as their working fluid. The difficulties in repairing such equipment include:

  • Aged equipment leads to more maintenance issues and failures.
  • Scarcity means purchasing refills are expensive.
  • Increased scarcity of parts, which makes maintenance difficult and costly.
  • Unavailability of the refrigerant in some areas, particularly remote locations could result in an inability to repair equipment.
  • Business disruption due to failed equipment which cannot be repaired quickly, if at all.

With this impending HCFC refrigerant transition, we can be sure that in the next few years, building owners, operators, contractors and equipment manufacturers have to be well prepared, with caution to phase out existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, or in search of alternative replacement to operate on an approved refrigerants. 

Even as we draw near the end of this transition out of HCFC, another refrigerant transition will soon be underway. Under the Kigali Amendment, Malaysia must reduce consumption of Hydrofluorocarbon’s (HFC) by 80% by 2045, with consumption frozen at a baseline on Jan 1, 2024. However to date, alternatives are not fully ready and the best solution remains to be HFC.

In our commitment to provide a healthier way of living, APAC is constantly investing to research and developing products with better alternatives that will be introduced only after rigorous testing. Feel free to get in touch with our team for your unit’s refrigerant phase out and its impending use by date. APAC can assess your current unit to provide a solution for a more efficient and environmentally friendly unit.
