Freon™ 410A is the leading HFC refrigerant for replacing R-22 in positive displacement residential and light commercial air-conditioning and heat pump systems. It has higher cooling capacity and significantly higher pressure than R-22 and should be used only in systems specifically designed for R-410A.
HFC-410A is included in the U.S. EPA SNAP de-listing of HFCs that will no longer be acceptable in new equipment in certain end use applications in the U.S. market. There are no U.S. regulations currently impacting the HFC service market. Refer to the Summary of U.S. EPA SNAP Regulations Pertaining to Refrigerants.
