Avoid Costly Refrigerant Charges – Upgrade Your AC!
Air conditioning systems have come a long way, and this is especially true when it comes to the refrigerant that modern systems use. If you didn’t know already, R-22 refrigerant is being phased out because it was found to cause harm to the ozone layer when released into the atmosphere. As of 2010, air conditioning manufacturers are required to use R-410A, a cleaner, more environmentally friendly refrigerant. As of January 1, 2020, the production and importing of R-22 will cease.
What exactly does this mean for homeowners throughout New Jersey?
You could be faced with increasing refrigerant charges if your equipment still uses R-22 refrigerant!
- As supplies of R-22 refrigerant are depleted, the wholesale cost will increase
- This means refrigerant charges will become more expensive for equipment that predates 2010
- Homeowners will continue to throw good money into an outdated system until it breaks down, and needs to be replaced completely
If your equipment was installed before 2010, there’s a good chance it still uses R-22 refrigerant! Avoid these rising refrigerant costs by upgrading your air conditioning system to one that utilizes R-410A refrigerant!
