Puron Refrigerant : The environmentally sound refrigerant

Environmentally sound, chlorine-free Puron® Refrigerant is the environmentally sound refrigerant choice. And it's no surprise that Carrier was the only manufacturer to develop indoor cooling products using Puron Refrigerant. Carrier offers the experience of having introduced the first air conditioners with an alternative refrigerant in 1996—6 years before other manufacturers caught up.

Today, Carrier has engineered an entire line of heating and cooling products with Puron Refrigerant, available right now to make your home more comfy.

The 1990 Clean Air Act identified refrigerant R-22—the longtime industry standard refrigerant used in most air conditioning and heat pump systems—to be phased out.

Carrier's extensive testing in hundreds of thousands of homes has proven that Puron Refrigerant is superior to R-22 not only in environmental safety, but in performance and energy efficiency. These results have made Puron Refrigerant the universally accepted, long-term refrigerant for the heating and cooling industry.

Carrier's Puron Refrigerant offers many benefits to homeowners:

  • Energy Efficiency — Most of our Puron Refrigerant air conditioners and heat pumps offer higher efficiency ratings. Puron Refrigerant's heat-transfer properties lend themselves to higher-efficiency performance.
  • Future Cost Of Service Savings — Because of U.S. government restrictions on future production, refrigerants with ozone-harming CFCs, the refrigerant used in most of today's heat pumps and air conditioners, will become harder to find and, eventually, more expensive. Upgrading to Puron Refrigerant now can help you avoid the potential rising cost of servicing most of today's air conditioners and heat pumps.
  • Reliability — Carrier air conditioners and heat pumps with Puron Refrigerant have become the most reliable products in our entire line.
  • Quiet Operation — Many of the air conditioners and heat pumps with Puron Refrigerant also offer Carrier's Silencer System technology for quieter operation.
