Air Conditioning
R-22: Repair or Replace

 

 

 

 

Learning about your air conditioner is a great way to perform routine maintenance, prevent faulty errors and also to keep it performing at its optimal performance level. One key aspect of the air conditioner is the refrigerant, or coolant, that is used. In many units, the refrigerant is R-22. However, recent environmental efforts have restricted the use of R-22 and it is being phased out of future models, along with other hydrochlorofluorocarbons, or HCFCs.

But what if your unit still operates with R-22? There are certainly some things that you should know.

Don't rush to replace your air conditioning unit before you're due. While the R-22 isn't being added to new units, it isn't really an environmental hazard until its leaking. Most air conditioning units are meant to last 10 years and R-22 will be available until 2020. Fiscally speaking, it wouldn't be responsible to buy a unit that uses R-22 since you will not get the maximum benefit from it before 2020.

For any other questions regarding the phase-out of R-22, feel free to reach out to your Miami air conditioning team and we'll be glad to help you out.
