The 1990 Clean Air Act mandated the gradual phase-out of R-22 refrigerant, an ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbon (CFC). The older refrigerant continues to be available for the maintenance of older equipment, but production levels continue to fall as prices steadily rise. In just the first quarter of 2012, its price more than tripled. As the phase-out has continued, more increases have followed -- now nearly 4X its 2010 price.
