    i think people gonna be using a lotta R422b

    few customers that i talk to in my area seem to really go for the refrigerant change.
    i tell them the situation with the R410a, ...i've even offered to retrofit and install a TXV for coversion.

    at the end of the day i end up replacing condensor or coil that is broken with an R22 component.

    few people want to replace the whole system.

    what is the government going to do in 2020?, cut us off from R22?

    a lot of people will have fairly new R22 systems, ...i guess i'm going to be using a lot of R422b
    ... i hope the crap works well

    I have a feeling we are going to see some changes in "government."

    Call it a wild guess.

    The "Ozone/CFC/HCFC" issue has been a clusterf*** from the beginning.

    The opportunity to begin phasing out R-22 equipment as of 1/1/10 was regretfully ignored and circumvented, in favor of SALES.

    So long as 22 equipment is available, we'll keep buying and installing it, regardless the absence of logic in doing so. Why would anyone buy something that's obsolete when it comes off the assembly line?

    The mfg's should have seriously considered the resistance of equipment owners to spend the money to make the conversion to 410A, and the service industry's preferred position to humor the equipment owners and make a sale.

    It took 20 years to get from the Montreal Protocol to a point in time where we could actually do something positive...and we screwed it up.
