Flammable Refrigerants – Some Current Issues

The phase-down of HFC refrigerants is resulting in increased interest in the use of low GWP refrigerants. The improper use of flammable refrigerants creates risks of fire and explosion in homes, motor vehicles, commercial buildings, and other workplaces. The intention is to highlight and discuss some current issues.
