FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: R22 REFRIGERANT


How do I know if my system uses R22 Refrigerant?

If your ac system was installed before 2010, there is a higher likelihood of using R-22 Refrigerant. If you aren’t sure, there is a label on the outside unit, which should specify the refrigerant used. The label might say “R22,” “R-22,” or “HCFC-22.” These are all R-22 refrigerant. If unable to determine, email a picture of the model & serial number to: info@legacyheatingandairinc.com

Can you swap out R22 Refrigerant and replace with R-410A?
