    Some people must not have liked 404a

    And very few people up north put in heat pumps so that sounds like a tough sell

    I noticed a Thermotron factory tech with a r22 bottle working on a r404a system. I asked him what the 22 was for and he said that's what they use as a trace gas for leak detection lol. That's expensive leak detection.

    I'm pretty sure arkema foran is a brand of refrigerant. Seems to me we used it back in reefer school days. They made 22 134a you name it just like any other manufacturers.
