Regular maintenance of air conditioning systems ensures that the system is operating efficiently and helps prevent refrigerant leaks that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. Remember: if the system does not leak, there is no direct atmospheric impact. 

Conventional F-gas systems are simpler to maintain and service, which means that technicians who are trained to service them are more easily accessible. Finding technicians with the specialized training needed to repair a complicated CO2 system is more challenging.

The bottom line: regular system maintenance is essential for both efficiency and longevity and neglecting it can lead to increased energy consumption and repair costs.
