The R-22 Phaseout

The official national phaseout aims to completely halt the production, sale, and use of R-22 refrigerant (Freon) in any mechanical or HVACR application. The process has been steadily undergoing for over twenty years, and by the year 2020 the process will be complete.

This means if you use air conditioning or chiller systems that currently make use of R-22 then you’ll be steadily paying more and more to maintain what you have, and eventually you’ll have to replace completely with a refrigerant conversion.

Monitor & Retain or Replacement Refrigerant

Many businesses are trying to hang on to R-22 and their current systems for as long as possible to minimize costs. And at General Mechanical we can understand that! We offer complete monitoring services to help you keep an eye on your current setup, helping minimize refrigerant loss and keeping you in the loop on when conversion and replacement becomes necessary.

Should I Convert My Refrigerant System?

This necessary eventual conversion need not be as agitating as it may sound! Updating your refrigerant to now more commonly used refrigerants like R-410a can actually offer you some nice perks, including:

  • Higher efficiency levels from better quality refrigerants
  • Better employee and client safety by using less volatile and toxic refrigerants
  • Lower refrigerant replacement and recharge costs
  • Reducing the cost of future HVACR upgrades and or replacements
  • Lowered greenhouse gas production and less environmental impact
