NEW FREON LAWS AND WHEN THEY TAKE EFFECT
The EPA regulations governing the Freon used in air conditioning and heating systems have changed.
In 2010, Freon 22, the freon that most consumers are familiar with, began being phased out due to the laws and regulations set forth by the EPA and the Federal Government. All manufacturers of air conditioning and heating equipment were required by law, to only produce HVAC equipment that used the new, environmentally friendly, R-410A Freon. In other words, manufacturers were outlawed from even manufacturing equipment that uses R-22.
Freon Manufacturers still produce R-22 for servicing and repairs, and will continue until 2020. At that point, R-22 will become completely obsolete and extinct.
If replacing your air conditioning and/or heating system is something you:
*Have even remotely considered
*Have received estimates for within the last 1-3 years
*Think may be necessary this year(2014)
*Are not sure if you should do before it breaks down
Now is the time to do it. Why? Because as R-22 is phased out and becomes obsolete, the prices for air conditioning and heating equipment is expected to rise substantially. Just for comparison, when R-12 was outlawed back in the early 1990's, the prices for R-12 rose almost 20-fold. R-12 at one time, cost around $2-$3 per pound(wholesale), but eventually rose to over $40 per pound. So you can see why postponing the replacement an air conditioning or heating system, that may or may not last another 2-5 years, will cost you more the longer you wait.
