The Next Generation of Cooling Refrigerants. An air conditioner or heat pump counts 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 home’s cooling system, but one of the most common refrigerants used for a very long time – the R-22 (Freon) is now being phased out in response to 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 R-410A is EPA-recognized, chlorine-free and ozone-friendly. R-410A will cool your home without hurting the environment. What’s more, Lennox’s highest efficiency systems are engineered to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system operate efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for durability, quiet operation and enhanced dehumidification, so you’ll stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At C&C Refrigeration Inc. in Waxahachie, our cooling offerings can work with R-410A. If your system was installed before 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is scarce. Some manufacturers offer 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.
