It is a fluid that is used in refrigerators and air-conditioners to remove heat from the inside and throw it out in the atmosphere. R-410 A refrigerant is better in terms of ‘global warming’, safe and more energy efficient.

R22 is a single hydro-chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) compound. It has low chlorine content but causes ozone depletion. R22 wont be manufactured from year 2010. Only recycled or remaining stock of R22 can be used.

R1410 is the green gas and an environmentally friendly refrigerant which is Non-CFC. That meant in case your system ever leaks, it won't cause any harm to ozone layer.
