9-16-2022 Due to recent availability, cost and phaseout of CFC R-22, we are no longer be carrying this refrigerant or using alternative refrigerants to retrofit.

For almost 30 years, our industry knew this refrigerant would cease due to the EPA.For this reason including due to the availability, overpriced cost and the 2023 Department of Energy Protocol going in effect Jan 1, 2023 for higher efficiency systems mandate. All CFS'S are banned due to global warming. While we continue to service these systems and do make electrical repairs we will no longer make any refrigerant r-22 related repair.


We have been told that the Goverment regulated CFC R-22 availability will end somewhere around  2020 and will no longer be available for sale after 2025, this end date came sooner.

If you suspect that you have CFC R22 in your system, see about what a new system with the aproved R-410a refrigerant would cost.

Complete Phaseout of R-22: As you are aware, R-22 has been on a phase out schedule for several years. January 1, 2025 begins a final phase out date since it will no longer be available per EPA. 

Here is what you need to know: Beginning January 1, 2020, it will no longer be permitted to produce or import R-22 into the United States.

After January 1, 2020 only recycled, AHRI-700 certified reclaimed product or virgin R-22 sold from existing stockpiles can be used for servicing existing equipment.

After 2020, the servicing of systems that use R-22 or blends containing HCFC-22 will rely on recovered or stockpiled quantities. It is difficult to predict when these supplies will run out.

Because the demand for R-22 is greater than what is being produced, retrofitting with another different refrigerant could be the next option on the customers mind. A replacement system is usually the best decesion if the R-22 system has leaks and needs service but is no longer under warranty.

Bill Owens Heating & Air Inc understands that some customers have other companies to consider a cost conscious retrofit of other refrigerants. These refrigerants have proven to reduce capacity and only prolong the inevitable. Some customers may prefer to do a retrofit instead of replacing the system with a new R-410A system.


RGF Reme HALO-LED Home Air Purification System                       


Concerned about the latest Corona Virus OR Flu outbreak.

Plagued with nasty odors, smells or germs in your home.

This product may help with Virus's, Germs and Bacteria.

Check the new product we are stocking from Trane Parts the REME HALO-H & the REME HALO-LED by RGF.

How it works:

The REME HALO®-H in-duct air purifier utilizes RGF’s proprietary Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy technology. Installed into the supply duct plenum of your existing air conditioning or heating system air ducts, the REME HALO® in-duct air purifier produces Hydro-Peroxide plasma that is distributed through the air handler, through the duct system and into the conditioned living space. Unlike passive air technologies, which need pollutants to pass through the unit for purification or filtration, the REME HALO® in-duct air purifier sweeps through your home actively purifying pollutants at the source. In addition, the charged plasma induces particles to coagulate or stick together making them bigger and easier for your filter to catch. Hydroperoxides occur naturally in the earth’s atmosphere and are part of nature’s process of cleaning the air.

The HALO-LED™ is the industry’s first LED in-duct, whole home air purification system that is both mercury free and zero ozone compliant. The HALO-LED™ proactively treats every cubic inch of air conditioned space, reducing airborne and surface contaminants and pollutants through bi-polar ionization and revolutionary, patent pending, REME-LED™ technology.

Warranty from RGF: Seven Years on the ballast and Four years on the cell.

Both invented to recreate nature’s process of purifying the air, it’s like bringing fresh outdoor air inside without ever having to open your windows. And it’s effective against all three categories of indoor air pollutants: Particulates, Microbial and Gases.

You can now reduce common allergy triggers from particulates such as pollen, mold spores, dander and dust. Thoroughly tested on airborne and surface bacteria & viruses, such as MRSA, e-coli, and Norwalk, to name a few. Say goodbye to odors from cooking, pets, dirty socks, diaper pails, and musty rooms.

What’s new:

The redesigned and improved REME HALO®-H & Halo-LED whole home in-duct HVAC unit features higher ionized hydroperoxide output, which gives faster kill rates for microbial contaminants in the air as well as on surfaces. This higher output also drops more particulates from the air, bringing relief to those who suffer from allergies and other respiratory issues. Now with quick release features for the cell and housing for faster cell replacement and an adjustable shroud for customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

Note: It is recommended these units be installed by a licensed electrician or HVAC professional. (Which we are)

Thank you for your inquiry.

We are unable to get ahold of the Corona Virus to test it but based on our results for eliminating similar viruses, we have reason to believe our products would also work on the Corona Virus.
