Sometimes holding on to the past is neither smart nor economical. If your HVAC unit is running on R-22 refrigerant your day of reckoning is very near. There have been changes due to environmental concerns as it is harmful to the atmosphere. As the R-22 refrigerant becomes less available the cost will also skyrocket. Here are some estimates on cost from Angie’s List.

In the meantime, these are the 3 main options you have to solve your tough situation.

  1. Wait until your system breaks.
  2. Convert your equipment to an existing refrigerant.
  3. Replace the entire system.
  4. By not being proactive and replacing your Air Conditioning you will also avoid having to wait a long miserable amount of time for installation. You know these events always occur in the hottest part of the season, Murphy’s Law!

    Besides simple electrical repairs fixing refrigerant leaks will be out of the question post-2020.

    According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, R-22 will become illegal in the United States on January 1, 2020.
