The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the nation’s largest association of indoor environmental systems professionals, has published its latest ComforTool for ACCA members to help educate customers. The newest addition to this series of flyers, “Why Is The Price Of R-22 Refrigerant So High?” explains the reason for the recent jump in the price of R-22 refrigerant and what may happen in the future.“The recent spike in the price of R-22 has caused a lot of frustration and confusion among contractors and their customers,” says Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president & CEO.
“This ComforTool serves as an explanation of what is going on in the market and how the the price of the refrigerant is out of the control of the contractors. We hope this will help our members deal with some of the push back they are getting from their customers in response to the price increases," Stalknecht says.
ACCA members can download the R-22 ComforTool, and any of the previous ComforTools, at no charge, at acca.org/comfortools.
