Cooling Refrigerants of the Future.

Stored in your air conditioner’s coils, refrigerants are liquids that cool and dehumidify your air. Without refrigerants, air conditioning would not be possible. For years, the most common AC refrigerant was R-22 (Freon), but in 2012 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated the phase-out of R-22 through the Clean Air Act. By 2020, it will be illegal to produce R-22 as a result of its destructive impact to the environment.

Introducing R-410A

R-410ATo lessen environmental impacts, all Lennox® products are now compatible with the new R-410A AC refrigerant. R-410A is EPA-recognized and doesn’t contain chlorine, which means it’s ozone-friendly. You can feel at ease using this refrigerant in Selbyville because it’ll help make your system perform efficiently, reliably and quietly, and provide the same cool comfort in the warmer months.

Additional Considerations

If your AC or heat pump was built anytime before 2010, it may not be R-410A-compatible. You probably should look into upgrading your cooling system before R-22 is ultimately phased out. The old refrigerant will become hard to find in the next few years, costing you more to operate your system effectively. The Lennox products we offer at Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing work with R-410A, so you know we have an AC or heat pump you can better rely on. Be sure to avoid”alternate refrigerants that claim to work in R-22 systems. These include R-407C, R-438A and R-422, all of which can actually compromise your system’s performance.
