R-22 to R-410A Conversions
Often times we run into a scenario where a component of a customer’s air conditioning system is past the point of repair and must be replaced. Many times the equipment is obsolete and the entire system should be updated. This is becoming more common due to changes in EPA regulations. If you’re finding yourself asking the question, “should I update my system?”, there’s a good chance that you should, and here’s why:
According to the U.S. Dept. Of Energy, new air conditioning equipment uses anywhere from 20% to 50% LESS energy than older outdated systems use to produce the same amount of cooling. This increase in efficiency can result in substantial utility savings over time for the homeowner.
Many existing systems still use R-22 refrigerant. The U.S. EPA has chosen to phase out this refrigerant since it is a HCFC (Hydrochlorofluorocarbon) and is said to play a role in the depletion of the ozone and global warming. The refrigerant, as well as equipment using this refrigerant, is expected to be phased out and unavailable as of 2018, so obtaining compatible replacement parts for an older air conditioning system is going to become a challenge.
