Refrigerantboys s.r.l.


Since January 2023 there is a sharp increase in prices of HFC and some types of HFO gas.

This is due to the reduction in GWP quotas developped by the European Community and the decision of some refrigerant gas producers to no longer import HFCs into Europe: this affair is creating less product availability on the market, leading to an unavoidable increase in prices.

The most affected gases will be those with a high GWP such as: R404a, R410, R422B, R407C, R134a, etc..

Our company is trying to bringing prices with the market and to maintain standard product accessibility.
