Soon, There Will Be No More R-22 (Freon)

Haller Enterprises

By Haller Enterprises

If your AC system was built before 2010, the refrigerant it runs on is most likely R-22 (Freon). If you’ve needed one or more Freon charges over the years, you’ve probably noticed the price climb from one charge and leak repair to the next.

That’s because Freon will no longer be manufactured or imported beginning January 1, 2020. What if you need a recharge in 2019? The combined cost of the repair and Freon could be $1,500 or more. So, the question to ask yourself is this: “Is it worth paying that much to repair an AC system that’s at least 10 years old?”

Most of our customers say, “No!” In fact, instead of waiting for the 2020 ban or their system to develop a leak, they’ve been proactively replacing their systems with more efficient versions, which now contain Freon’s replacement R-410A.

Why the Change?

More than 30 years ago R-22 was found to be ozone-depleting, leading numerous countries, including ours, to develop and implement a phase-out plan while developing the eco-friendlier R-410A replacement.

We encourage you to do the same and for all the best reasons:

  • Before too long, you’re going to need a replacement system anyway
  • Replace it now and avoid the potentially high cost of repairing a Freon leak
  • Replace it now and check off one more item on your “worry” list; plus, you’ll enjoy a whole new level of energy-efficient comfort
