Default Replacement for F-12

I'm using new a old stock Climate Master geothermal unit, with the price of F-12 refrigerant, I was wondering about the various F-12 replacements available. Anyone have experience replacing F-12 refrigerant? I don't know what on-line literature I can trust.
Thanks in advance

Yup, r-12. I guess I was thinking about the F in Freon. And I was also meaning R22 as in HVAC not Automotive. I didn't get out the gate very well with that question did I?

R433b is pretty close to a drop in replacement, it will require tweaking the TXV to perform its best so make sure the TXV is adjustable first.
