To ensure these high professional standards are maintained, companies are reinspected every three years.
In addition, it’s also a requirement for engineers working for a REFCOM Elite registered company to hold a recognised SKILLCard, like that issued by ACRIB. This further promotes best practice by ensuring appropriate qualifications, skills and competence, as well as health and safety training and assessment.
Why Use a REFCOM Elite Contractor?
When handled with the right controls, F-gases used in HVAC equipment are safe. However, in cases of misuse, these refrigerants can have detrimental effects on the earth’s atmosphere. That’s why training and codes of practice beyond the bare minimum are absolutely essential.
Choosing a REFCOM Elite contractor gives you peace of mind that their standards far exceed what is required of them, and that you’re getting a service that’s been fully vetted to ensure utmost competence.
It’s a standard that’s becoming more of an industry expectation. In July 2020, REFCOM won Initiative of the Year at the ACR News Awards for its new Elite Supplier scheme, to which manufacturers like Fujitsu General, Mitsubishi Electric and Daikin have signed up to. With some of the biggest names in air conditioning backing these initiatives, the standards set by REFCOM Elite are paving the way for a more responsible industry.
