    Default R-22, How much per pound?

    What are service companies charging per pound for R-22 this year? My daugter's unit quit.... intitial analysis by tech is that it is "out" of freon. Unit is only a couple of years old...not a high end model. He says it is under warranty, but I am thinking if there is a leak, the freon may not be covered.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but $50 a pound is about as cheap as it can be had anymore. The supply of R22 in the United States is being intentionally limited and phased out. Costs have more than doubled in the past 12 months. Here is an article on the supply of R22.

    There was a lot of money in smuggling it from Mexico.

    I believe they still use it there.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.

    The supply house here is $20.00 lb. Maybe mark up to $30.00. I have a full 20# bottle of R-12 in the shop.
