THE FUTURE OF REFRIGERANT

GET YOUR COMPANY PREPARED NOW FOR THE UPCOMING REFRIGERANT CHANGES

WHAT IS R-454B?

R-454B is the Day & Night® solution for meeting the EPA’s anticipated global warming potential (GWP) limits for
refrigerants and the scheduled phase-down of higher GWP refrigerants like R-410A.

REFRIGERANT SUPPLY PHASE-DOWN TIMELINE

  • Beginning January 1, 2025, the EPA will no longer allow manufacturers to build residential ducted and ductless HVAC equipment using
    the current R-410A refrigerant.
  • R-454B not only meets but exceeds the new requirement with a GWP of 466 and is a 75% reduction in GWP compared to R-410A.
  • The EPA’s vision for reduced GWP refrigerants in 2025 is just one part of the program.
  • The other is a targeted phase-down of higher GWP gases like R-410A.
  • The current goal of the phase-out is not a complete ban – it’s a gradual, 85% reduction in global warming emissions from refrigerants
    by 2036.
