    ATLANTA, GA, January 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For many years, Freon was the refrigerant chemical of choice. It worked effectively and efficiently. In July of 2010, however, it was banned nationwide in the United States as a result of much evidence to the fact that the substance depletes the Earth's ozone layer and that its counterpart, R-22 (Puron) is a better choice for air conditioners.

The Trane compressor supply business, APM Cool, wishes to explain the difference between Freon and Puron HVAC system refrigerants.

Puron vs. Freon

Understanding the difference between these two materials requires taking a look at their chemical composition. Freon, also known as chlorodifluoromethane, is a mixture of alkylbenzene, polyester oils and trace minerals. When electrically charged, these substances are incredibly harmful to the environment, which is the main reason why its use in refrigeration systems is highly regulated and will be kept to a bare minimum by the year 2020.

On the other hand, Puron combines two eco-friendly chemicals, difluoromethane and pentafluoroethane, and is also believed to run more efficiently in most residential and commercial compressor systems.

According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Cool, "Since the production of Freon will be severely limited in the coming years, its price will inevitably increase. This, along with the environmental and performance benefits of its counterpart, makes it clear that Puron is the way to go."

The one downside is that the chemicals cannot be used interchangeably, which may necessitate purchasing a new unit.
