New CO2 Equivalent & Leak Testing Interval Calculator

New CO2 Equivalent & Leak Testing Interval Calculator

New CO2 Equivalent & Leak Testing Interval Calculator

Cold Heat introduces their new CO2 Equivalent Calculator that provides the t CO2 eq and maximum interval between leak testing for air conditioning units for a given F-Gas Type. The CO2 Equivalent Calculator is intuitive and therefore very easy to use following the steps below.

Steps to use the Cold Heat CO2 Equivalent Calculator

  1. Access the CO2 Equivalent Calculator on our Leak Test Information page (opens in a new browser tab or window).
  2. From the dropdown list, select the Type of F-Gas relevant to the air conditioner unit you wish to check
  3. Enter the mass of the gas (which is the weight in KGs)
  4. Select the Calculate button and the tonnes CO2 equivalent (often referred to as t CO 2 eq) and the maximum interval between leak tests will be displayed. 

That's all there is to it, repeat as required for other type of F-Gas and use the Clear Form button to remove previous entries, if required.

Please note that the calculator is provided by Cold Heat as a guide to assist you in determining the tonnes CO2 equivalent (t CO 2 eq) and the maximum interval between leak tests for your gas type, it does not, and is not intended, to replace the advice of a qualified HVAC engineer. Therefore, please use the calculator in good faith in preparation to speaking to a qualified engineer.
