    Sir you are extremely correct and highly educated!
    I was only comparing the two in the original post, by far the finest refrigerant available to mankind is ammonia.

    As for me R-290! cheap very safe and excellent characteristics for head pressure discharge temp and compression ratio and beats the hell out of R-22! Yet has nearly the same evap temp.
