What You Need to Know about the Refrigerant Phase-Out

May 1st, 2017


One of the most common misconceptions that homeowners have about their air conditioners is that refrigerant, commonly referred to as Freon, needs to be refilled (recharged) on a regular basis. The contrary is actually true—your refrigerant should ideally never need to be recharged, as your cooling system is supplied with enough during installation to last its entire lifespan.

Another very important thing to know about your system’s refrigerant is that if you are utilizing an older AC system with R-22 in it, then your refrigerant is about to be fully phased out, due to the harmful effects that it has on the environment. Fortunately, however, if it is time to replace your cooling system then you needn’t look too far for quality AC replacement services!
