HVAC Will No Longer Have R22 Refrigerant

Throw in the cost of getting an R 22 recharge as well as it just makes more sense to simply substitute the HVAC unit

So 2020 is here. That number sort of hurts my brain a bit. I just can’t believe that both of us are entering the third decade of the current millennium. It seems as though Y2K was just the other day. That’s been 20 years ago now. However, there is no lack of drama in the coming dawn of the upcoming decade. The presidential race should be a slobberknocker. I can’t even imagine how it will be. However, there is a big HVAC concern to be dealt with in the coming weeks. On the first day of the current year, the HVAC refrigerant R 22 will no longer be made in the United States. This will affect many corporations as well as homeowners out there. All commercial as well as residential HVAC models have been made without R 22 for the last 7 years or so. Even so, there are still some remaining HVAC systems that still utilize this style of refrigerant. For those people, there are some decisions to make. The ban will make the price for R 22 go through the roof. That’s if you are still able to find it. There will be those who will store up this refrigerant hoping to money later. But really, sticking with an HVAC proposal that makes use of R 22 is a bit short-sighted. First, these heating as well as cooling units are quite ancient. They are also far less efficient than the new HVAC models. Throw in the cost of getting an R 22 recharge as well as it just makes more sense to simply substitute the HVAC unit. I guess if I was having to deal with this concern, I would just substitute the seasoned HVAC for a new one.
