R-32 Refrigerant: Proven. Easy. Efficient. Available. The Right Choice for a Greener Climate.
Daikin is leading the industry with the switch to the next generation of refrigerants that have a lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) than R-410A: R-32. R-32 is the A2L refrigerant that’s widely used around the world today. With over 160 million R-32 units made by over 40 manufacturers and installed in more than 90 countries, R-32 is the easy choice and the proven global standard.
In addition, R-32 is the only pure, single-component refrigerant slated to replace the high GWP refrigerant, R-410A. Unlike blended refrigerants, which can change composition, R-32 is easy to top off or clean and reuse on-site. It’s also easy to reclaim and reuse off-site with a simple cleaning process.
Perhaps most importantly, R-32’s excellent thermodynamic properties allow the new Daikin ATMOSPHERA system to be up to 12% higher in SEER and up to 18% higher in HSPF than the Daikin LV Series using R-410A, lowering indirect emissions throughout the lifecycle of the systems. Additionally, because R-32 has a GWP of 675 and requires less charge in certain systems, direct emissions from those systems can be up to 80% lower than similar R-410A systems. The result? Fewer greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change, based on Daikin studies.
