How The Phaseout of R-22 Could Impact You

If you have an HVAC system, and most modern homes do, your heating and cooling might be running on a refrigerant known as R-22 freon. Why does this matter to you? Because in just a few months, the use of R-22 will continue phasing out in a big way! Here’s what you need to know about the end of this ozone-depleting substance that might be lurking in your home’s HVAC system! 

It all began in January of 2010, when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented a ban on the production and import of R-22, with the exception of servicing the needs of existing equipment. Why did they do this? Simply because R-22 is one of the most common emission gasses which destroy the ozone layer; the shield that protects the earth from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Since R-22 is one of these harmful chemicals, the United States has committed to collaborating internationally to regulate, and phase out ozone-depleting substances, including R-22.
