Air Conditioning Refrigerants
More info on the EPA phase-out of R-22
The feds are at it again with changes to air conditioning refrigerants. In 2017 it will be 14 SEER only and no R-22. Well, that’s not entirely true! You can still get the R-22 for your old systems but you will pay! The average cost of a jug of R-22 refrigerant is approaching $700.00. Which means you could pay as much for a major repair on your system as you could on just purchasing a new one. Not to mention the efficiency of a new system will pay for itself. Let’s all be smart and check into replacement before spending too much on repairs.
