Air conditioning season is right around the corner and for many of us the air conditioner is still the last thing on our minds. However, many of us also know that in a matter of a couple months we will be relying on that unit for our comfort and in some cases our safety and security as well. Last summer was brutally hot, and here at Four Seasons, we found thousands of air conditioners that were on their last leg. Many homeowners opted for temporary repairs instead of system replacement, and odds are the system is not going to be working when the summer heat finally calls for its use.
Refrigerant Leaks are to Blame
Refrigerant leaks are to blame for this problem. Most people are still using old R-22 units in their homes, and that type of refrigerant is not only outdated, but it is also out of production. R-22 damages our atmosphere and it has been replaced by non-ozone depleting R-410A. All newly manufactured air conditioners are sold using R-410A, and the supply of R-22 is dwindling. So, as a homeowner, this spring you have 2 choices: throw more money into an old system that uses an outdated, earth damaging refrigerant or replace that old clunker with a new R-410A system. When you look at it this way, the choice seems easy, and Four Seasons is here to sweeten the deal.
Best Time to Buy and Install
Late winter and early spring is the off season for any heating and cooling company. The weather isn’t so cold that the furnace is working hard and it is defiantly not hot enough to need the air conditioner. So, this is often the best time of year to purchase a new system! Prices are low and scheduling couldn’t be more convenient. When the heat hits, those that waited will find themselves in crisis, and luckily for them Four Seasons will still be there to help, but you don’t have to wait till the last minute to use our services. Call Four Seasons today, get a new air conditioner, and avoid the chaos of the summer heat
