The remaining R22 phase out schedule in the United States (as per the EPA final rule) is as follows:
January 1, 2019: R22 production drops 55% from 2018 supply to 4 million pounds.
January 1, 2020: R22 phased out completely, no new or imported R22 allowed in the U.S.
What does this R22 phase out schedule mean to you? Each time supply is reduced, R22 prices (and repair prices) will jump up. Come January 2020 when R22 is fully phased out, it can no longer be imported or manufactured in the U.S. That means your old equipment can’t be repaired if the refrigerant is unavailable. You’ll be forced to replace it the next time it needs a repair that requires adding refrigerant (many types of repairs do). DO NOTHING NOW AND WAIT FOR THE INEVITABLE BREAKDOWN OF EACH UNIT. If a unit breaks after January 2020, chances are you’ll have to replace at that time. If it happens prior to 2020, you’ll need to decide if you want to replace at that time, or invest in what will likely be an exorbitant price for a repair.
One thing to keep in mind: the closer we get to 2020, there will be lots of equipment owners in the same boat as you, all needing their systems replaced. You know what it’s like when you need a repair during an August heat wave? This situation will likely be a whole lot worse.
When your system finally breaks and you need an emergency replacement, and you could be without AC for some time while you wait for installation availability.

Best Air has been taking care of my house(s) for years. They are outstanding. I found them online and am so grateful I did. The installed an air conditioner and furnace at my old house before I sold it and they did a fantastic job.
Very pleased with the service. Offered me suggestions on tweaking my duct flow to heat up the basement. That's the kind of info I would never get from the installer of my furnace.
Needed emergency service, and Greg came out and diagnosed what I suspected, that the system was in dire need of replacing. I was prepared for the worst when the job was complete and the bill came due, but thankfully, the price was more than reasonable. Couldn't be happier, and I will definitely use Best Air Heating and Cooling in the future.
