Upcoming Refrigerant Changes in 2023

As 2023 approaches, significant changes in the HVAC industry are set to unfold, particularly concerning refrigerants used in household air conditioning systems. Climatrol Air, a trusted name in North Georgia’s HVAC services since 1949, is here to guide you through these changes in an easy-to-understand manner, ensuring that your maintenance, repair, replacement, or installation decisions are well-informed.

Phasedown of HFC Refrigerants

The new national HFC phasedown law, which came into effect on January 1, 2022, as part of the federal AIM Act signed in December 2020, initiates a 15-year gradual reduction in the use of HFC refrigerants. This change is not just a federal mandate but is also being echoed by state-level initiatives aimed at reducing high global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants.

In 2023, this phasedown will begin affecting residential air conditioning systems, particularly with the gradual reduction of R-410A, a commonly used refrigerant in household air conditioning systems today. The implications for homeowners in North Georgia are significant, as the phasedown will impact the availability and servicing of existing systems.

Transition to New Refrigerants in 2023 and Beyond

With the ongoing phasedown, the industry will see the introduction of new refrigerants in air conditioners and heat pumps from 2023 onwards. One of the leading names in the HVAC industry, Carrier – a brand Climatrol Air proudly partners with – is expected to start incorporating the new refrigerant R-454B in their North American HVAC systems in 2023.

R-454B is a groundbreaking refrigerant that offers a lower GWP alternative to R-410A, without depleting the ozone layer. This change signifies a significant shift in the industry, moving towards more environmentally friendly and efficient refrigeration solutions. As these changes roll out, new equipment installations will increasingly feature this new type of refrigerant.
