Most window shakers 10 years old or less use R134a.

I have yet to see any window units in my area that took anything different to R-22. In my area we charge them to 68 PSI with R-22.

With the cost rising on R22 you might ask your suppler and try one of the substitutes for it .You will get a little temp difference. Most I see are 134.
