Plan to update your system

It's time to start thinking about how changes in regulations will effect your home's cooling system. See the information below. Talk with your PPI professional and include the conversion of your air conditioning unit to Puron in your plans for home maintenance.

Freon® – 22 Refrigerant

Since its debut in 1930, Freon refrigerant has been used in cooling systems. And while it's still available, the Clean Air Act of 1990 prohibits the production of Freon-22-based air conditioners and heat pumps by 2010, and Freon-22 production by 2020. As Freon-22 production declines, its cost is predicted to rise.

Puron® Refrigerant

Carrier was the first to introduce a new, non-ozone-depleting refrigerant called Puron – a full six years ahead of the competition – paving the way for the future. Puron refrigerant is chlorine-free, so it doesn't damage the Earth's ozone layer. And, as other refrigerants become less available, Puron refrigerant will be the refrigerant of choice for years to come.


The following change will effect the cost and availability of freon in years to come:

January 2004   35% reduction of R-22 produced
January 2010   Production of HVAC equipment utilizing
                        R-22 banned and 65% reduction in consumption
January 2015   90% reduction of R-22 produced
January 2020   Production of R-22 banned
