WARNING: Propane is not a compatible refrigerant. See the EPA's website concerning a warning against using propane as a refrigerant. Frost 22A is being marketed as a replacement for refrigerant in your home or business air conditioning unit. The warning is that any refrigerant containing propane or butane, including Frost 22A, may work well in your system, but presents a distinct safety risk to you, your family, or anyone who services the system if used in your home or business, especially if the system has a leak. For more details on this, see the Questions and Answers provided by the EPA.
