Due Diligence: To assist you with your R-22 Inventory Strategy, it is suggested that you perform due diligence through individual research. To assist you with some ground work, internet searches are invaluable. Try using terms such as refrigerant, HCFC, R-22 and chlorodifluoromethane, etc.We strongly suggest contacting multiple suppliers to locate the best price. Please keep storage and other expenses in mind when making your decision.
EPA 608 Certification or Resale: Since November 14, 1994, EPA-Approved Section 608 certification and/or a resale certificate indicating that the product is being purchased for eventual resale is required to purchase refrigerant R-22.
Risk: The purchase of refrigerant R-22 is speculative in nature and involves risk. This is not a futures market, you actually own the product. Refrigerant prices can be extremely volatile as was the experience with R-134a in the Spring of 2005. Therefore, before purchasing refrigerant R-22, you should first have adequate cash reserves and other assets to absorb a potentially significant loss. Seasonal and/or pre-seasonal purchases can create peaks and valleys in market pricing.
Holding Period: Historically, few refrigerants have appreciated as dramatically as refrigerants R-12 and R-134a in the short term. Purchasers should recognize that refrigerants are seasonal in nature.
