Phase Out of R22 Freon Refridgerant

The Refrigerant Change Means a Choice for Users of Older Air Conditioners

You have probably heard that the former HVAC industry standard R22 refrigerant – also known as Freon – is being phased out worldwide due to its harmful effects on the ozone layer. As per the US Environmental Protection Agency, manufacturing or importing R22 refrigerant is illegal in the United States as of January 1, 2020 – except for continued servicing needs of existing equipment. As a result of the phase out of R22 Freon refrigerant, manufacturers of HVAC equipment redesigned their systems to accommodate R410A, a chlorine-free refrigerant.

Indoor Air Quality Advice from Your Local HVAC Team

Whole Home Air Purifier

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, your indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Pet dander, dust, carpets, cooking, fumes from aerosols, outdoor pollutants like pollen coming in through the HVAC system, etc., will have an impact on the air quality and consequently, your health. Reactions may range from irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, to headaches, dizziness and fatigue, depending on age and pre-existing medical conditions. For individuals suffering from allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions, symptoms can tend to become very aggravated. The benefits of whole home air purifier systems can remove particulate matter and other hard-to-remove impurities and pollutants helping you breathe easier.
