Section 608 Clean Air Act

EPA Bans Ozone-Depleting Refrigerants

The use of the chemical refrigerant R-22 is being phased out by the EPA under the Montreal Protocol. The U.S. must achieve a certain percentage of progress towards the total phase out of production and consumption of HCFCs.

How may this effect you?

Due to the phase out of the production of the chemical R-22 it will become more expensive for consumers to service their air conditioning units. A refrigerant leak could result in cost of $800 or more because of the phase out and inflated expense of R-22. Highly energy-efficient air conditioners with EPA’s Energy Star® label can save you 10% to 40% on heating and cooling bills yearly.
