Older AC Systems Are Losing Their Cool.

For Older AC Systems with R-22 Freon Coolant


A government environmental ban on R-22 freon coolant, an air conditioning coolant, has been implemented. Air conditioning systems manufactured before 2010 will be affected.

It’s important to consider your options now, which include:

1
DON'T DO ANYTHING

In some cases, we can make older systems work with newer coolants. Our technicians are happy to provide a free assessment to see if this is possible with your system.

Things to Know:

  • If you have a coolant leak, we’ll be able to supply a small amount of R-22 this year.
  • Next year, we won’t be able to supply any R-22 at all.
  • If you have a breakdown that isn’t the result of a leak, you should weigh the cost of repair with the cost-saving efficiency of a new system that doesn’t use R-22.

2
RETROFIT YOUR SYSTEM

In some cases, we can make older systems work with newer coolants. Our technicians are happy to provide a free assessment to see if this is possible with your system.

Things to Know:

  • Retrofitting can lead to a loss of cooling effectiveness and efficiency
  • This means it could cost more to run your AC, for less comfort.
  • It can also void any existing warranty.

3
REPLACE YOUR SYSTEM

Newer, more energy-efficient systems cost less to run, are better for the environment, and offer better comfort.

Things to Know:

  • This will be the most costly option at the outset.
  • We offer generous financing options and can help find special equipment offers to help offset the cost.
  • You’ll also save on energy costs in the long run.
