    HFA stands for hydrofluoroalkane, the substance that propels your inhaler. The previous propellant was made from chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs for short, which the FDA removed from sale as of December 31, 2008, because they deplete the ozone layer.4 Your new ProAir HFA inhaler contains the same medicine, and is just as safe and effective, but is now propelled by the more environmentally friendly HFA propellant.5
