Updating old auto air conditioning Sex china asian dating
Throughout this article, we’ll use the name R410a (although Puron is a well-known brand, there are other companies that make R410a).
There are some valuable benefits to switching from an R22 air conditioning unit to one that uses R410a.
If you’re thinking, “Holy cow, this is starting to sound expensive,” you’re correct, it is.
This is why when our technicians come out to inspect your unit we check to see what refrigerant your unit uses, and in the majority of the cases, we’ll recommend an upgrade due to the increasing cost of maintaining an R22 air conditioner.
The graph above shows the EPA’s consumption allowance of R22 by percentage.
The limits on R22 consumption were implemented in 2010 and follow a declining trend until 2020.
The production and import of R22 will be continually reduced by law until 2020, when all production and import will be eliminated.
Only recycled R22 refrigerant will be available to service existing air conditioners after 2020.
To confirm the public’s compliance with the new law, all sales of R22 must be purchased by a certified technician.
There are requirements for importing, labeling, record keeping, reporting, destruction and reclaiming of R22 from existing systems.
The cost of R22 is dramatically increasing because of the declining supply, and new refrigerant will no longer be available for use at all after 2020, with the exception of recycled quantities.
You can find the type of refrigerant your system runs on by looking at the appliance’s nameplate.
This nameplate is typically found on the outdoor condenser of your central air conditioning system.
If you are starting to think this is a great topic for an economics professor regarding supply and demand, then you are correct.
