Most Popular Refrigerant Being Phased Out Can Mean Costlier AC Repairs

Staying cool this summer season is going to be a lot more expensive for some Americans because the most popular refrigerant, which is called R-22 , is in the process of being phased out in order to cut back on hydrochlorofluorocarbons.

It has been said that R-22 will be cut by 11 percent in 2013 and 2014 under the proposal by the Environmental Protection Agency.

So as a result, the price of the refrigerant has been steadily rising and probably will keep rising. In this case, homeowners must decide whether they want to keep replacing refrigerants (and spending hundred of dollars in the process) or consider the costlier option of replacing older, leaky old units with newer ones that don’t leak.
