Freon, R-22 Vs. R-410A

The changes are here!  No more manufacturing of R-22 Condensing units.  We can still possibly install one for you, but finding them is not easy.  It is time to move on to the new, more environmentally friendly refrigerant R-410A.

We still service R-22 units and have the ability to add R-22 Freon to your system but leak testing is a must.  You cannot have a HVAC Company come to your home every year and add freon.  If this is happening, that means there is a leak that must be located.

R-22 is harmful to the environment, R-410A is proven to be less harmful.  We need to find leaks and repair them if possible, otherwise we might need to put in a new R-410A unit.  If your unit is over 16 years old, chances are it is about time to think about a new unit.

The average life of a Air Conditioning system is 12-16 years.  If you are in that time period, it is time to start thinking about installing a new, higher efficient system (and possibly getting a tax credit in 2010).
