How do you buy freon 22?
You are asking how to buy freon 22 I'm assuming.First off,,, lets just clear up the word ( freon ).freon is a trade brand name which is commonly but inaccurately applied to all R-22 Refrigerant available on the markets.Many different companies offer this product and it is sold under their mfg. names. Dupont is one for example. ( same stuff ) different mfg.or supplier.
Now to your question. ( Buy Freon 22? )
You must have or aquire a appropriate license to purchase this product directly to dispense yourself.The E.P.A. has several companies that they have approvedtheir courses for licensure which you may purchase and study then take test under witness of a approved examiner.
R-22 will stop being produced in a few years.Like you saw happen with R-12 in the past.A new refrigerant is slated to be used with all new equipment soon and it also requires licensure to handle and dispense even though it is considered envioronmentally safe product to date.Now here is the point of this lecture,,,,,,There are alternative refrigerants even now for older R-22 systems. You can still get R-22 of course, ( but ) its price will soon increase dramatically to discourage its use as was done with R-12 during final years of its faze out.But!!!!!!,,,,, YOU WILL have a refrigerant that you can use in your older R-22 system for some years to come.So don't buy it if a sales person says you gotta buy a whole new R-410A system cuz R-22 is no longer available for your older system and they are not enterchangable.( There is and will be a R-22 substitute for some timeto come to keep your system working )
Hope this helps:
Envirosafe sells R22a, a propane based freon that they claim is compatible with R22 systems, but to add this to your system legally you have to first have your system evacuated of reg. freon 22 by a recovery sytem, it is against federal law to release it into the atmosphere as well as mixing different types of freon. The good news is that it costs less than R22, they claim it is more efficient than…
No. The sale of R-22 freon is restricted in the united states because if it's effects on the environment. The only people who are allowed to purchase R-22 freon are certified refrigeration and air conditioning technicians. If this is for your vehicles, you can buy a converter kit at any auto parts store. This will allow you to use R-134a to recharge your car's air conditioning.
On all years, makes and models you will need to go to any automotive a/c repair shop and have them reclaim this for you.... (Do not just let it out in the atmosphere this is illegal)....... Depending of if your have R-12 freon or R134A freon you can buy the R134a freon at any auto parts store but you need to be licensed to buy R-12 freon.........
There is many different types of Freon. If the freon that you are trying to use is R-22 then you have to have a EPA certification to handle that freon. This freon is considered ozone depleteing. Now there is freon out there that is not ozone depleting like the freon in cars made after 1993. That is called R-134a which is sold everywhere even in Wal-Mart.
I was just charged 89 plus 155 to add two pounds of freon 22. Can I make a claim for this overcharged bill for adding freon 22?
Answer To buy freon, you must obtain an ODP card. This can be done buy taking a course at your local college, provided you are an apprentice of some sort that requires the use of this product. If you get this card, remember that you are responsibe to keep a record of every ounce of freon used, if you recovered any, and what you put it in.
Freon is only a brand name. There are two primary refrigerants(aka freon) used home air conditioners R-22(which is being phased out due to its ozone depleting) and R-410a(which is the primary replacement for R-22). R-22 A/C's are still sold but they are not being manufactured after January of 2010. So the only R-22 units being sold are units that were stockpiled.
It depends on what year the unit was built. Most AC units for your Home used R-22. A new freon 410A is used in the newer systems. There has been a slow switch over from about mid 2005 until now but the EPA has banned AC units from being built with R-22 now so any unit you buy today will have the 410A.
