Daikin believes R-32 is the most balanced refrigerant solution to replace R-410A or R-22 that can mitigate the global warming impact of residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pump equipment. It has several advantages over other alternatives:
It requires less energy to use (as compared to R-410A, the most commonly used refrigerant today), and it is easier to recycle. There is no perfect alternative refrigerant applicable for every kind of application, so it is necessary to use the most suitable refrigerant for each application. However, Daikin believes R-32 is the best, next generation refrigerant for many applications.
