Availability and Cost of R-22
R-22 is a refrigerant that is often used in air conditioning equipment. Because R-22 depletes the ozone layer, production and import was further limited in 2010. In 2020, R-22 will no longer be produced or imported.
- After 2020, only recovered, recycled, or reclaimed
supplies of R-22 will be available.
- The production (not use) of R-22 is being phased
out. You are not required to stop using R-22 air
conditioners nor to replace existing equipment.
- The phaseout period provides time to switch to
ozone-friendly refrigerants when you normally would
replace your air conditioner.
- In the future, R-22 supplies will be more limited and
costs to service equipment with R-22 will continue to rise.
Why R22 Refrigerant cost is skyrocketing?
Why is this happening? Well, environmentalists say R22 refrigerant depletes the O-zone so the Environmental Protection Agency is phasing it out. They plan to completely stop making it by 2020. As supply continues to dip, it’s only going to get more expensive as we approach 2020. You can learn more by visiting: https://www.epa.gov/ods-phaseout
