What Does the R-22 (Freon) Phase Out Mean for Maintenance and Repairs?

The price of R-22 has been rapidly increasing as it is no longer manufactured.

Let us help you find a solution to increasing repair costs by replacing your old A/C or heat pump system if it is found to be leaking R-22 into the atmosphere.

From the EPA’s website:
“As the United States phases out refrigerant R-22, you will need to make informed choices when servicing, repairing, or replacing an existing air-conditioning unit or when purchasing a new unit. EPA has banned the manufacture of new equipment that contains R-22. As a homeowner, you need to consider and balance several key factors in your decision to purchase a new unit, such as energy efficiency, performance, reliability, cost, and the refrigerant used.

R-22 is a refrigerant that is often used in air-conditioning equipment.

Because R-22 depletes the ozone layer, production and import was further limited in 2010.

In 2020, R-22 will no longer be produced or imported. After 2020, only recovered, recycled, or reclaimed supplies of R-22 will be available.

The production (not use) of R-22 is being phased out. You are not required to stop using R-22 air conditioners nor to replace existing equipment.

The phaseout period provides time to switch to ozone-friendly refrigerants when you normally would replace your air conditioner.
In the future, R-22 supplies will be more limited and costs to service equipment with R-22 may rise.”
