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 sent back through your home. This liquid is found within the coils of your cooling system, but one of the most common refrigerants that’s been in use for many years – the R-22 (Freon) is now being replaced due to environmental concerns. In fact, this phase-out was mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. By 2020, the production of R-22 will end all together.

Introducing R-410A

R-410AR-410A is EPA-recognized, chlorine-free and ozone-friendly. That means it’ll cool your home without hurting the environment. Additionally, Lennox’s highest efficiency systems are made to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system function efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for dependability, quiet operation and enhanced dehumidification, so you can stay comfortable.

Additional Considerations

At Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline, our cooling offerings can work with R-410A. If your system was made before 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is completely phased out. Some manufacturers carry 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.
