Have an old R-22 air conditioning system and need Freon? Chances are your wallet felt lighter after the air conditioning installation was done, but you may have been ripped off.
Dramatic Price Increase for R-22 Freon
In an effort to cause less damage to the environment, the government stopped manufacturing air conditioning units using R-22 Freon in 2011. However, some air conditioning manufacturers found a loophole with dry charge units, which are simply air conditioning condensers that are sold and shipped containing no refrigerant.
Production on R-22 Freon was reduced even further in 2015, causing the price per pound of R-22 Freon to TRIPLE.
How To Manage The Cost
If your air conditioning system is leaking Freon it is fast becoming a better idea to oust that old equipment and purchase a system using R-410A.
