R410-a will be replaced by A2L refrigerants, which are a class of refrigerants that have a higher efficiency and a lower GWP (global warming potential). The two main substitutes for R410a are R-32 and R-454B. Second, familiarize yourself with replacement options. R-410A substitutes are A2L group refrigerants, but not all A2L are the same.
It is important to analyze the performance characteristics of each refrigerant; for example, what is the refrigerant charge, heat capacity, or efficiency? Beyond GWP, these variables have a significant impact on total lifecycle climate performance and operating costs throughout the lifecycle. With this information, you can help guide your customers to the ideal option for their application.
