    I can't say I'm against it really. I just dont think any Joe schmoe should use it. Most people are stupid. I would just rather have equipment rated for it and know where it is. Might just be a lot better than 410A.

    "Non-Toxic, Non-Carcinogen - No Long Term health Risks"..... Does this include health risks due to explosions. Notice they can't say non flammable.

    Only on CFC and HCFC refrigerants. HFC, and FC refrigerants don't require EPA certification. Thats why anyone can buy R134A or R410A.
