I like to make sure I find and fix the leaks prior to adding and refrigerant because we don’t want to come back for free if the air conditioner stops working. braise the leaks or replace leaky components.

I like to install a new inline filter dryer when doing this retrofit. Using a good vacuum pump let this run for a minimum of 30 minuets.

I do like my JB vacuum pump because it pulls down tight and you know you don’t have a leak or use a micron gauge to measure the vacuum in micrometers.

    Is Nu 22 the same as R-22?
    NU-22B can be used to COMPLETELY replace R-22 refrigerant in new or existing R-22 residential and commercial air conditioning systems as well as non-flooded evaporator chillers. Cannot be added to R-22 unless fully evacuated and recharged with NU-22B. NU-22B® Replaces R-22, R-407C, R-422D and R-417A.

    Is NU 22 a good home air conditioner replacement for R-22?
    Freon™ NU-22B™ has an ASHRAE A1 classification and is non-ozone depleting and nonflammable. It is well-suited for AC applications because it closely mimics the operating characteristics of R-22 and works over the same operating pressures as R-22.

    What is the best drop in replacement for R-22 home air conditioner?
    The best replacement for R-22 Freon is usually R-407c. It has a very low loss in capacity (0 – 5%) relative to R-22 and is less expensive than many other R-22 replacement refrigerants.

    Can you replace the R-22 with another refrigerant? Yes!
    If your unit runs on R22 fron refrigerant, you can replace it with a refrigerant alternative yourself or contact a professional to help you switch out the refrigerant. If the above options aren’t viable, you do have the option of installing a new, modern system in which an R22 alternative is already in place.

    Can you still buy R-22 refrigerant in the USA?
    If you rely on a heating or cooling system that uses R22 refrigerant, an ozone-depleting substance (ODS), you may be in for a surprise during your next service visit. As of January 1, 2020, production and import of R22 refrigerant will be illegal in the United States. Some companies still have R22 refrigerants to recharge your home air conditioners but call and ask your HVAC company prior to them showing up.

    Do you have to flush out system.

    1. Chad

      If you are an EPA licensed technician you cannot mix refrigerants so recover all R22 in the system. I would not flush out the system. I would replace the filter dryer. Pull a good vacuum in the system to 500 micron or lower. You can add the synthetic oil if you feel your refrigerant needs it.
