Preparing Yourself for the Phase-Out of R-22

Do You Know?

Refrigerant 22 belongs to the family of chlorine refrigerants referred to as HCFC. Canada has agreed to the terms of the Montreal Protocol on ozone depletion. This calls for two major actions.

  1. The phase-out of all HCFC production by the year 2020.
  2. The termination of all equipment manufacture using R-22 by the year 2010.

Refrigerant 22 - Here Today - Gone Tomorrow

The production cap for all HCFC was established in 1999. Starting in 2004, the limit was set at 65% of the 1999 production rate. The limit will continue to drop to 35% in 2010 and 10% in 2015, until all production of R-22 must end in 2020.
No one can forecast the exact future price of R-22, however consider the rapid rise of the price of R-12 after it was no longer used in new products and its manufacture was discontinued. This is definitely, an indicator of the future trend for R-22.

The Long Term Winner is Refrigerant - R-410A

After over a decade of research into possible replacements, most major air conditioners  and heat pumps have introduced R-410A systems. It is readily - available and has unquestioned reliability and acceptance. It is the long-term solution and replacement for R-22.

Don't Buy R-22 Equipment Today

Make the right choice. It is no longer necessary to buy equipment that will be obsolete before the end of its economic life. You should be specifying and purchasing R-410A equipment now.

Custom Vac Is Experienced and Ready Now

We heard and responded quickly to both the changes in technology and the requests of many customers by installing R-410A systems. During the past two years the vast majority of systems that we installed were R-410A. Further, we invested the time and dollars in education and training of our staff to ensure the proper installation and service procedures were understood. R-410A and the new system components are much different than equipment that uses R-22 and require specialized training to fully understand the system requirements.

Make the wise selection today, for R-410A and Custom Vac - the leader in quality, innovative heating and cooling products and service. R-410A systems are more efficient, quieter, environmentally friendly, and available today. Our customer's energy bills and comfort have always been our top priority.
