Information about the R410A shortageThe facts you need to know about the R410A coolant shortage and how it might increase refrigerant prices this year.

R410A is one of the most widely used - and environmentally-friendly -  refrigerants used in residential central and ductless/mini-split AC systems.

Recently, one of the world’s largest producers of a vital chemical used in the production of R410A, suffered a catastrophic explosion at its factory in China, severely limiting most of the worldwide production of R410A.

The shortage is impacting prices of R410A refrigerant. Some prices have quadrupled for certain components and this increase has affected the pricing for customers purchasing refrigerant for their home AC systems this year.  

In order to ensure that we can continue to service your air conditioning equipment with no interruption during the summer months, our company is stocking additional amounts of  R410A refrigerant. We are confident that we have an adequate supply to meet our customers’ needs.
