The Phase-Out of R22

The Phase-Out of R22

R22 Phaseout

R-22, also known as chlorodifluoromethane is the old standard for residential air conditioners, now being phased out by the U.S. There is an R22 phase out coming to its end in 2020.

To protect the Earth’s ozone layer, the EPA ordered the phaseout of the refrigerant R22. In 2010, production of units needing to be charged with R22. There was 90% reduction in its production in 2015 and all production of R22 will be ceased in 2020. The prices of R22 refrigerant will increase due to its limited production, even though the remaining quantities can still be sold. The cost can be increased by 3 to 4 times its original price. It is important to note that only production, not use will be phased out.

What to Do If Your Current System Uses R22

There are more environmentally-friendly options to use as the refrigerant for your system if it takes R22. While it is not recommended to use alternate refrigerants in a system requiring R22, it can be a temporary fix. While this solution may work for awhile, Edward’s Air recommends upgrading to a newer, higher efficiency air conditioning unit. The newer units will use the environmentally-friendly R410A refrigerant. These newer systems will also save you in energy costs as well. Keep several factors in mind when choosing a new air conditioning system. Efficiency, performance, reliability, cost, and refrigerant used.
