The present article is focused on scientific research on the proper use of refrigerants for domestic use and its environmental impact, has been done because this involves a great problem for humanity, although it is true that the technology that is developed every day is very advantageous for the development of society, this also threatens our planet, which is not ethically correct, because the environment is being polluted by the activities that perform daily human beings, mainly in our homes which regularly use refrigeration equipment such as air conditioning, refrigerators, etc.. For the operation of such equipment need refrigerant gases which is one of the main factors that influence global pollution. The negative effect that represents the use of these refrigerant gases, is the cause of the gradual damage of the ozone layer causing its progressive deterioration, as well as the so-called greenhouse effect, being this a real danger because it causes global warming on the planet and thus acid rain, forest fire and melting glaciers. Due to the negative effects caused by these refrigerant gases, different ethical treaties were developed for the benefit of the planet, one of which we can mention is the Montreal Protocol, which restricted the production, use, and trade of CFCs (chlorofluorocarbon refrigerants) as a means to prevent the depletion of the ozone layer and in response to this situation, natural refrigerants have again been considered as an ecological option.
