R-22 Rationing Begins

R-22 Refrigerant Phase Out graphicA recent EPA notification announced additional limits on the importation and production of the R-22 refrigerant to only 39 million pounds resulting in price spikes and severe rationing of the supply.  As an example, COAC was recently buying R-22 by the pallet (40 jugs per pallet) and now we are limited to 2 jugs per order. Additionally, in the last 6 months the price of R-22 locally has spiked 240%. In some parts of the country, the rate is double that increase.
DuPont, manufacturer of the Freon brand of R-22, temporarily suspended all orders of Freon until the supply situation was stabilized and the EPA notifications could be fully digested.
If your building’s HVAC equipment uses R-22 don’t panic but now is the time to plan for the eventual phase out of that equipment. Please contact COAC with your questions or concerns about this rapidly evolving shortage.  Contact us at 916.381.4611 or info@coacair.com.
