So that you understand why R22 is being replaced, let’s take a brief look at the history of this refrigerant.


These days, we take wide scale refrigeration and air conditioning for granted, but it is actually only a recent innovation. R22 refrigerant had a massive part to play in bringing us these modern conveniences, but there was also a hidden downside.

In the 1930’s, scientists looking for a better refrigerant created R22 refrigerant. It was a massive improvement on what was already available and led to a surge in the usage of air conditioning and refrigeration. Before this, these items were luxury goods, but R22 helped make them available for all.

It soon became clear that not everything was great about R22. In the 1980’s, it was recognized that the HCFCs found in R22 were having a bad effect on the ozone layer. Although commitments were made in the 1980’s to end the use of R22, these are only beginning to be enforced now. By 2020, R22 will no longer be in production. Already manufacturing of this refrigerant is slowing down, causing an upwards pressure on prices (including price per pound).

In response to the end of R22 usage, many alternatives have hit the market, including TdX 20. Made with environmental standards in mind, TdX 20 is as effective as R22 refrigerant, without using harmful HCFCs. TdX 20 is the best and most cost effective R22 replacement currently available. Meeting all modern environmental standards and optimizing the performance of your existing HVAC equipment, transitioning to TdX 20 now represents a unique opportunity.

It is not often that you can take the environmentally responsible path while also saving money. The transition away from R22 is not a forced one. You will not be obliged to replace your existing refrigerant. So some people think that changing now is unnecessary. They are missing one important point though.

Bluon’s TdX 20 is more efficient than R22 and significantly more efficient than any of the other replacements and will pay for itself rather quickly.
