Refrigerant Pricing Predictions

The price of coolant for air conditioners and refrigerators (R-22) is strictly controlled by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


The EPA has created a sort of coolant cartel. The price of R-22 might be changing because over the last three months the EPA has increased R-22 allocations, China has agreed to control its emissions, and a new bill was introduced to Congress to enforce refrigerant leaks. Some states are also cracking down on leak offenders.


The EPA has created a myriad of legal hurdles and red tape for itself and the cooling industry. R-22’s price remains volatile and unpredictable as does any industry relying on climate controlled environments.
