Phase out of older refrigerant makes a new air conditioner a good idea
Now that summer weather is here to stay, the last thing you want is for your air conditioner to fail in the middle of a heat wave. Robinson Heating & Cooling offers 24-hour air conditioner service so you don’t have to suffer too long in sweltering conditions.
One of the more common issues we see when providing 24-hour air conditioner service involves refrigerant levels. If you have an older air conditioner, chances are it uses a refrigerant known as R22. This type of refrigerant is becoming more expensive, and to a large extent is no longer available, because we no longer can purchase it new.
With this in mind, many of our customers are taking the opportunity to purchase a new, more energy-efficient air conditioner that uses R410A refrigerant. This refrigerant not only performs better than the R22 variety, it does not contribute to depletion of the ozone layer and thus has less environmental impact.
Energy Savings Agreement lets you avoid 24-hour air conditioner service fees
We make it easy for you to avoid paying after-hours fees for 24-hour air conditioner service. Our Energy Savings Agreement (ESA) is ideal if you plan for our team to perform annual maintenance on your home’s comfort systems. This prepaid plan covers maintenance on items such as your furnace, air conditioner, and programmable thermostat, and gives you a discount on any new parts.
When it comes to fixing your old air conditioner, the solution is not as simple as switching out the old R22 refrigerant in favor of R410A refrigerant. The formulas are drastically different, requiring an entirely new unit that meets today’s energy code standards.
Supply chain issues continue to impact our ability to obtain new air conditioners as quickly as we would like, with typical delivery times running 1½-2 weeks after we place an order. Schedule a consultation with one of our experts to see if the time might be right to invest in a new air conditioner and avoid a potentially urgent situation.
In the meantime, you can count on our 24-hour air conditioner service to keep you cool if your equipment still has life remaining.
