About the Three Biggest R-22 Companies

If your air conditioner was installed before 2010, it most likely runs on R-22 refrigerant. This refrigerant is being phased out as it is one of the most common culprits in global warming acceleration. Before time runs out to refuel your AC with this R-22 refrigerant, it helps to know more about it and which companies still manufacturer it.

There are three major companies that produce R-22 refrigerant. If your air conditioner needs to be refilled, speak to your HVAC technician for more information. There are technicians certified by the EPA who can discuss your needs and will help you if your air conditioning system needs to be drained of its existing R22 supply. The companies that still make this refrigerant are DuPont, HoneyWell, and Mexichem.

Highest Quality Refrigerants

These companies are known for producing the highest quality refrigerants. Their blends of R-22 are still recommended for many HVAC systems today, and they can still be used.

DuPont is known for being the company that invented refrigerants. Today, it also operates under the company name of Chemours. The refrigerants it now produces include those made with titanium dioxide, and fluro chemical solutions. These are now being made and distributed by Chemours which is still part of DuPont and still offers the same commitment to quality and innovation.

The quality of products remains the same as ever. The only thing that has changed is the company name and the types of refrigerants, all of which are kinder to the environment.

It is important to note that DuPont makes all-American products. You can be sure that when you use a refrigerant from the company that it is guaranteed to be made in America. This is an important detail to note as so many refrigerants are exported from China and do not have the same degree of quality.

HVAC Company

HoneyWell is another major brand that has developed and produced American made refrigerants. It is interesting to note that this company has partnered with DuPont to make many of its products. Some of them are not made in the USA, but they are made with the same degree of precision and care as those made in the US.

MexiChem is the third largest refrigerant production company. They are also technically the newest, having formed in the late 1990s. Yet, they have been collectively around for almost half a century. The company has a global presence. The company has its headquarters in Mexcio. There are several plants all across the globe. This company is more popular for making the 134a refrigerant. It is also made in Louisiana so this is one of their all-American products which are commonly used in many air conditioning units.

If you need bluon refrigerant before it is phased out, contact your HVAC company. They will be able to help you get your air conditioner refilled and know where to get the best quality products. Most of these products have been produced by one of the major companies listed above.
