* Source – Department of Energy and Water Supply, Queensland Laws are in place to minimize refrigerant emissions into the atmosphere If leaked or emitted into the atmosphere, the fluorocarbon refrigerant gas contained in most air conditioners and refrigerators can be extremely harmful to the environment.
In particular, it can damage the Ozone Layer and contribute to global warming.

The ozone layer protects life on earth by absorbing ultra-violet (UV) radiation from the sun. UV radiation is linked to skin cancer, genetic damage and immune suppression in humans and other living organisms.
