Your Air Conditioner and the R-22 Dilemma

If your AC unit has had issues, not working properly or it needs freon each year, it could be a costly endeavor this year. R-22 or chlorodifluoromethane (no wonder they call is R-22), better known as Freon, is a refrigerant gas that has been used in AC units for many years. Fifty years ago R-22 was king of the coolant industry. It was affordable, long-lasting and performed remarkably well. As with many early industrial ventures, it was later discovered to be harmful to the environment. R-22 was determined to be both Ozone Depletion and have a potential effect on Global Warming. For the average consumer with an older model AC unit, this can mean a big expense when it comes to repairs.

Why is R-22 so expensive?

Due to requirements set forth by the Montreal Protocol, R-22 has been phased out of new HVAC equipment in the United States. Of course, there are still older AC units across the nation using R-22. The EPA and the government are mandated to remove R-22 from production by 2020. Recycled or recovered R-22 can still be used in older units until supplies are diminished. In an effort to discourage consumers from using it the government has dramatically increased the cost. A new tank of freon which cost $350 last year is $800 this year.… Read More
