Briton Refrigerant R410A

Difluoromethane, Pentafluoroethane

R-410A has replaced R-22 as the preferred refrigerant for use in residential and commercial air conditioners. Parts designed specifically for R-410A must be used as R-410A operates at higher pressures than other refrigerants. R-410A systems thus require service personnel to use different tools, equipment, safety standards, and techniques. Equipment manufacturers are aware of these changes and require the certification of professionals installing R-410A systems. In addition, the AC&R Safety Coalition has been created to help educate professionals about R-410A systems.
