Is Your Myrtle Beach Air Conditioning Depleting The Ozone?

Is your current Myrtle Beach air conditioning system cooling your home in danger of extinction? Since 2010, all new air conditioning and heat pump units manufactured in North America have been required to use chlorine-free refrigerants. If you have a Myrtle Beach air conditioning unit that is more than a few years old, it is probably using an R-22 Freon refrigerant. This is a coolant that is thought to deplete the ozone layer.

Myrtle Beach Air Conditioning Depleting the Ozone?All of the major residential HVAC equipment manufacturers now manufacture air conditioning units using the new R-410A refrigerant. R-410A is an environmentally friendly, next-generation refrigerant. Many previously-used refrigerants (including R-22) contain chlorine, a chemical which is considered harmful to the ozone layer.

Myrtle Beach Air Conditioning Systems Will Get More Expensive To Service

As the government continues to force the phase-out of R-22 production, prices for R-22 continue to rise. For homeowners who still use R-22, they are finding the costs are are being passed along to them.

New air conditioning equipment is specially designed for the higher operating pressures of R-410A. That means your old condenser and system needs to be replaced if you decide to switch from the old R-22 refrigerant.

As old Myrtle Beach air conditioning systems are phased out and replaced, there is a good chance there will be a niche market for R-22 parts and repair. In other words, over the years the older systems are going to become harder and more expensive to repair.

Homeowners and business owners buying a new air conditioning system should ask for an AC unit or heat pump that uses the more efficient and environmentally friendly R-410A refrigerant. When you buy a system using R-410A, you future-proof your investment and virtually eliminate the possibility that any leaking refrigerant from your system will contribute to ozone layer depletion.
