These gases are present in weatherproofing / air conditioning equipment of homes and commercial premises, cold rooms, air conditioners and firefighting equipment, among others.
Moreover, according to RD115 / 2017, equipment and appliances containing fluorinated gases may only be sold to the end user when evidence is provided that the installation will be carried out by an approved company, that is, one that is in possession of the RITE (companies of Weatherproofing) or the Certificate of Professionalism of “Installation and Maintenance of Refrigeration Installations” (Refrigeration Companies) and is legally established.
