Spring A/C Inspections and Cleanings

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

If your A/C unit needs to be cleaned and inspected this Spring one of the questions you my be asking yourself is  – What if my central air conditioning system uses R-22 refrigerant?  Well, existing central air units using R-22 can still use R-22 and be serviced with R-22. You can choose to retrofit your unit to use a substitute, but some changes to your air conditioning system will still need to be made to ensure it will work properly. R-410A is not allowed in retrofits due to its higher working pressures.

New air conditioning systems use R-410A; R-410A is manufactured and sold under various trade names, including GENETRON AZ-20®, SUVA 410A®, Forane® 410A, and Puron®. If you choose to use a substitute refrigerant consult a qualified HVAC company that uses EPA certified repair technicians and installers who know how to properly handle refrigerants.

You may also look to purchase a new air conditioner in the future, new units use R-410A refrigerant which is non-ozone depleting and will save you money due to its increased energy efficiency.

In April of 2010, The State of Illinois offered consumers rebates on energy efficient appliances including the aforementioned refrigerators and central air conditioners. This and other programs have helped to transform consumer habits in terms of purchases and how they use energy. (more…)
