    The R22 Phase Out — What It Means For Your Air Conditioner

    Homeowners who have older air conditioning systems serving their homes are facing the unlikable prospect of replacing their cooling systems
    by the year 2020. These older air conditioners use a type of refrigerant known as HCFC-22, affectionately known to the public as “Freon”.
    However, government regulations concerning environmental emissions and ozone depletion require the new R410-A type, and there is no retrofit
    or other modifications that can enable the older systems to work with R410a. As a result, the transition from R22 to R410-A Freon will mean
    most air conditioners from the last few decades will need to be replaced.

    R22 Availability

    The new EPA standards for refrigerant were implemented as part of the Clean Air Act, which is enforced by the U.S. Environmental Protection
    Agency. By the year 2020, R22 Freon will no longer be manufactured. Between 2015 and 2020, the price of R22 Freon is expected to increase
    exponentially. As the phase-out deadline nears and available stocks of R22 refrigerant fade, prices are expected to rise even higher. By the rule
    of simple supply and demand, repair and maintenance costs will definitely increase. In addition to the increased costs for maintaining their
    existing air conditioners, homeowners must anticipate the intimidating prospect of investing thousands of dollars in a new environmentally
    compliant cooling system.


    To take advantage of this situation, homeowners who need to replace their air conditioners should consider it an opportunity to purchase a high-
    efficiency cooling system. These types of extremely efficient air conditioners tend to be more expensive at first, but they provide significant
    savings on monthly energy bills.
