How The R-22 Refrigerant Phase-Out Might Affect Your AC
Are you using an older air conditioning system? Like, older than a decade? If so, now might be a pretty good time to get around to replacing it. Summer is not far off at all, and with certain changes coming for refrigerant used in older air conditioners you may end up paying through the nose for repairs later on if you’re not careful.
Let’s take a look at the phase-out of R-22 refrigerant, what it means for air conditioners that still use the fluid, and why you should consider installing a new system.
4 Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner
When spring is almost at an end, and summer is on the horizon, you want to make sure your home is ready to take on the heat we get here in the Kansas City metro area!
That might mean scheduling preventive maintenance (aka a tune-up) for your air conditioning system to get it in top operating condition, or it could mean finally getting that AC repair done to replace the compressor, or a capacitor, or having to track down the refrigerant leaks that can plague older air conditioners, and those repair costs can add up so fast, especially with frequent repairs.
You don’t want to go into summer with a system you can’t rely on to keep you cool and your energy bills low. If you’re not certain whether or not your current air conditioner has the chops to get you through another hot Kansas City season, read on for some common signs that might help you decide.
