EPA Outlines Final R-22 Phaseout Plan

The EPA recently announced their final phasedown plan for production and importation of R-22 refrigerant. Property owners, managers and facility directors have been wondering for years when this type of refrigerant will become more difficult to obtain, forcing them into the purchase of new equipment versus repairing existing systems.

The plan implements a 51% reduction in the millions of pounds of refrigerant available in 2015 versus 2014. The government agency plans to maintain this same trajectory into 2020 when the refrigerant is completely phased out and unavailable for purchase.

Now is the time to begin thinking about how the new rules will impact your equipment and long term budget. Contact our office 860-355-3705 to schedule an appointment to review all of your systems that may be affected by this new ruling.
