R-22 Refrigerant Phasing Out The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that R-22 refrigerant (also known as the brand FREON®), a common refrigerant for residential heat pumps and air conditioning systems, has a negative impact on the environment. The EPA is regulating the production and use of refrigerants and in the future all the air conditioning and heat pump refrigerants that contain chlorine will be eliminated. How does this affect you? If your home has a heating and air conditioning system that uses R-22 refrigerant, it does not mean you have to panic or run out to purchase a new system. Production of R-22 refrigerant is winding down, and while the costs will rise, production will go on until 2020. After that time recycled refrigerants should be accessible for a while. As a result of the change, Falso Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in East Syracuse provides R410A, a more environmentally friendly option for refrigerants which will reduce the damage to the ozone layer.
