R-22 & window units

I just spoke with someone at a local manufacturer and yes, this law applies to window and PTAC units as well.

It is okay to sell any existing stock, but no R-22 systems can be manufatured or brought into the country after January 1, 2010.

What's really funny is this. The company I spoke with has a facility abroad and they have to get all of the R-22 stock over here before January 1. Even though they own the facility, bringing the goods over after Janauary 1, 2010 would be a violation of the new law.

Hope this helps.


  • R-22 compliance with pending regs

    Hey Prof,

    Am I correct that window units must also comply with the pending Jan 1 2010 manufacturing change to R-410a (although anything already manufacturered can be sent down the pipeline to be sold)?

    I'm not him

    And that what I hear to be true as well Mr Yates.

    While you down here may I ask what is......

    SCAQMD Rule 1121 Notice when it comes to water heaters?


  • looks like

    Haier has the only 410a window unit I could find & it carries a 12-EER rating. I've been studying window AC units for Consumers Digest & I'm stunned by the many advances & features these little rascals offer. Even built-in UV on some models. Quiet, efficient & with features galore.

    Thanks for the replies. I was wondering about the import thing as many window AC models are mfgrd outside our borders.
