    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.

    I have used r22a in three unit in summer 2012. Just to test it. It is propane,but it works. Can not be mixed. Use 1oz 22a for 2 1/2 of r22. Homeowner said his elec. bill was down by 30%. pressure about the same on low side and lower on the high side.
