Our environment is our responsibility and we must always try to protect it from being damaged. One of the initiatives that the government of the United States has undertaken as part of the ‘Clean Air Act’ is to reduce the emission of ozone-depleting substances (ODS).
The EPA has taken strict measures to stop the production or importation of ODS Class I substances which mainly constitutes of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). ODS Class II substances include hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) which are being slowly phased out currently, in 2020.
R-22 Phaseout Plan
Of the many HCFCs, HCFC-22 (or also known as R-22) is a common refrigerant that is used in air conditioning equipment even today. Our technicians are trained in handling such equipment while following the EPA guidelines. If any of your current air conditioners use R-22, we can help you to repair it and advise you about what the best plan moving forward will be for your residence or commercial property.
