Refrigerant Lifecycle: Best Practices

Why Reclamation?

As an industry leader, Daikin Comfort Technologies has partnered with EPA certified reclaimers which ensures refrigerant is recovered properly and brought back to virgin levels of purity for use in any system. 


This will help supplement the refrigerant supply as the industry prepares for significant shortages and price increases of R410A.
