Just wondering, has anyone heard any rumors about 410a being replaced? I know Wikipedia is not reliable but I saw this quote on there today under the 410a entry:
"Update May 29, 2011 Because of the much higher operating pressures, units over 5 years old are sustaining catastrophic failures due to metal fatigue of the condenser. Service personnel injuries and property damage have resulted. Several commercial insurance companies are prohibiting the servicing of these units due to the likelihood of injury or death.
The US EPA is now allowing the production of R22 units and refrigerant to resume until a suitable substitute for R410a can be found."
Anybody know if there is any truth to this? Has any contractor had their insurance company tell them to stop servicing 410a units? Or, is this BS? Please comment if you've heard one way or the other.
