As you probably heard, R-134A is being phased out due to its global warming potential (GWP). Unlike the CFC and HCFC phaseouts,
R- 134A refrigerant production will not be restricted but the equipment that uses it will be. The equipment phaseout will be as follows:
à 2021- Automobiles for this model year (cars produced in 2020)
à 1/1/2021- Domestic refrigerators and freezers.
à 1/1/2024 Centrifugal and positive displacement equipment.
