Will mo99 replace 410a?
I'll preface with - I just barely know enough about refrigeration to be dangerous. The 608 card is all show and no go. I don't own gauges, and hope to never touch them again. Thinking about superheat and subcooling, that it comes so naturally to refer guys, gets my head spinning.
That said, the ENERGY side interests me a lot and I think I CAN get my head around that, so...
Doesn't lower pressure offer a slew of benefits, including easier serviceability and more efficient compressor operation?
If R-22 systems run lower pressures, and now mo99 can replace r-22, does this make the shift to 410a obsolete?
Will they start designing high efficiency equipment around mo99?
Which makes more sense to you?
- turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
- leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!
