Hello, You can to a replacement refrigerant R-22a. Its much cheaper, and works a little better than R-22, it is also listed by ASHRAE as R 290. It is propane with a little n-butane added... it is widely used all over the world. It is flammable, but refrigerant leaks are most generally just traces, it has not been an actual fire hazard and is approved for use in the US, Canada and Australlia and virtually all of the EU. .............We are on the honor system here.
