Though you may know it more commonly as refrigerant, R22 is the coolant that creates the cold air coming from many standard air conditioning units. After being discovered to contain ozone-depleting substances, R22 has been gradually phased out and banned from use in newer AC units by the Environmental Protection Agency. However, homeowners with older air conditioning systems may still need to use R22 to recharge their AC unit. Doing this can be a challenge due to the ban—and due to the high prices associated with it.
As a result of the R22 ban and the Montreal Protocol as a whole, there is a limited supply of R22 remaining. Unfortunately, since many air conditioning units were built before the ban was put into place, a large number of homeowners and business owners still require R22 for their units to cool properly. If you live in a home or own a business with air conditioning unit that still operates using R22, check out our tips below to find different options for saving on cooling costs.
If purchasing R22 refrigerant to recharge your AC unit is too impractical financially (or makes you feel unsteady about your family’s health and safety), you may want to consider these alternatives:
Instead of wasting money and resources on R22, invest in a new cooling system for your home. You’ll have the comfort of knowing that you’re keeping money in your pocket while keeping your home healthier in the process.
