Refrigerant 22 or called R-22 is still the most widely used for air conditioners. However, since it has a relatively high global warming properties, the use of R-22 should be stopped. Refrigerant 290 briefed as R-290 (propane) is the type of refrigerant recommended by many experts for R-22 replacements because the global warming properties of R290 are much lower than R-22. Therefore, in this study the cooling capacity, flow rate mass, power consumed and COP will be evaluated. The air conditioner engine used in this research has 1 PK capacity which is redesigned by adding separator / ducting on various main components of AC. From the result of the study, there are several conclusions revealed: on the same compressor capacity, R-22 cooling capacity is still greater than R290. Meanwhile, the flow rate of R290 is lower than R-22. For power consumption from R-290, it is smaller than R-22. For the value of COP R-290, the value shows greater ie at R-290 on the variation of Incoming Temperature In Evaporator 20°C = 6.23, 23°C = 6.36, 25°C = 6.86, 29°C = 6.20. While at R-22, it shows 20°C = 5.36, 23°C = 6.02, 25°C = 5.76, 29°C = 6.335
