The Next Generation of Cooling Refrigerants.

An air conditioner or heat pump relies on its refrigerant to cool and dehumidify the air before it’s streamed back into your home. This liquid is found within the coils of your cooling system, but one of the most common refrigerants used for many, many years – the R-22 (Freon) is now being replaced in response to environmental concerns. In fact, this phase-out was mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. Production of R-22 will cease by 2020.

Introducing R-410A

R-410AR-410A is EPA-recognized, chlorine-free and ozone-friendly. This means it will keep your home cool without hurting the environment. What’s more, Lennox’s highest efficiency systems are engineered to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system function efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for dependability, quiet operation and better dehumidification, so you’re sure to stay comfortable.

Additional Considerations

At Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC in Hamilton, our cooling models can work with R-410A. If you have a system that was made prior to 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is completely phased out. Some manufacturers carry alternate refrigerants such as R-407C, R-438A and R-422, however, they may not work with an R-22 AC or heat pump and could compromise your system’s performance.
