Cooling Refrigerants of the Future. An air conditioner or heat pump uses its refrigerant to cool and dehumidify the air before it’s streamed back into your home. This liquid is housed within the coils of a cooling system, but one of the most common refrigerants used for many, many years – the R-22 (Freon) is now being phased out because of environmental concerns. In fact, this phase-out was mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be in production. Introducing R-410A Chlorine-free and ozone-friendly, R-410A is recognized by the EPA. R-410A will keep your AC running cool without damaging the environment. What’s more, Lennox’s highest efficiency systems are designed to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system perform efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for dependability, quiet operation and enhanced dehumidification, so you can stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At A2Z Air Inc in Boynton Beach, our cooling products can work with R-410A. If your system was made before 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is hard to find. Some manufacturers sell 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.
