Awesome huh. now we are getting emails from our safety. Now our resi guys have to question homeowners. I'm sure light commercial will be running rampant with this stuff. Light commercial seems to produce the most hackery around here. I bet they were loading skids into beatup pickups.
Sounds to good to be true.
22a is basically hydrocarbon/propane. something gonna go kaboom
I find it interesting that there MSDS does not give it's chemical makeup :whistle:

Job security. For us and the EMTs.
I don't know why we don't just use gasoline. Its a darn good refrigerant.
