2015’s Summer is Approaching…

The 2015 Season is Fast Approaching

Are you ready? We’re already into March and it’s just a few more months until the heat kicks in. I’m hoping for a hot, hot, hot summer. The more heat the better business is!

Personally, I just installed a new R-410A unit and kicked out my old R-22. I’m anxious to see what kind of energy savings I am going to see this year versus my R-22 system. I also got a new blower installed and definitely feel the difference. No better feeling than turning on that new unit!


Refrigerants are a commodity. Prices go up and down every week and you never know when a big spike in price is coming. So, with that in mind I say BUY NOW! Why? Well, the heat hasn’t hit the country yet and when the heat hits is when the prices start to climb. A few summers ago R-134a was going for about $70 a cylinder in early spring and it jumped all the way over $200 a cylinder in late July early August.

If you have the initial capital to invest in refrigerants now I would spend it. You get the low price and you don’t have to worry about the expense down the road. If you are interested in purchasing check out our bulk purchasing page.


I’m pretty excited as this will be my first full season with the RefrigerantShopper website up and running. ( I started it in August of last year.) My goal with the website is to making shopping for refrigerants easy and affordable while also providing industry updates and news.

We have cylinders at a time through our Amazon and E-Bay partners and we also have bulk pallet quantities available through our various refrigerant distributors. Are you looking for a pallet? Well visit our bulk purchasing page and we will forward your information on to our distributors and they will then reach out to you. You make the decision on who you want to order from.

Search Engines

Over the past few months I have been working on my search engine rank in Google and Bing with the goal of being to be on the first page of results for any type of refrigerant. It is a long process but I am slowly getting there and am ranking well with R-404A and R-410A. The more content that is available the better your site ranks, so I have been working tirelessly to produce as much content as I can for the industry. I’ve learned a lot through the process as well. Just yesterday I was found over fifty times just through Google’s search engine, so it is working!

Preferred Partners

A new feature that I have added to the website is our ‘Preferred Partners,’ program. Preferred Partners offers your refrigerant distribution company the ability to partner with RefrigerantShopper.com. Partnership comes with the following perks:

  • First look at any bulk refrigerant deals.
  • Your website/company featured on our home page https://refrigeranthq.com

  • Sidebar or Footer advertising for your company.

Pricing is charged on a monthly basis and can be cancelled at any time. If you are interested in becoming a Preferred Partner please click here and fill out the following form.


No matter if you are a technician, HVAC contractor, or a distributor I hope everyone has a great and HOT summer. Look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for reading,
