As per the US Environmental Protection Agency, R22 became illegal in the United States on January 1, 2020. After the R22 refrigerant phase out date, R22 can no longer be manufactured or imported into the US. R22 (also known as Freon) was phased out worldwide due to the harmful effects on the ozone layer.
Have you been limping along every summer with your older R22 air conditioner? Hoping to avoid replacing it during the high season? Especially if you know your unit has a refrigerant leak, you may be trying to decide how long you can get by before you will have to invest in a new system.
Older R22 systems have become obsolete and can no longer be repaired when the repair would require adding refrigerant to the system. With no supply of R22, fixing a refrigerant leak is out of the question.
JED believes in being proactive. This is why we have been talking to our customers about this issue for some time now, so they understand the situation and can plan accordingly.
System replacement is a Big Deal
JED knows that what you are hoping to put off, is a system replacement. But if you are experiencing problems with your system, doing nothing is not really an option, either, since your comfort conditions are probably unacceptable to you.
Especially for a large commercial customer, it is a huge expense (not to mention business inconvenience) to replace an extensive system or many multiple units. While it is bad enough when you know it is coming, having to do so with no warning is much worse. Even homeowners do not want an issue like this to take them by surprise and end up having to be without air conditioning at the wrong time. The point is, you do not want to be replacing your system on an emergency basis.
YOU MAY HAVE TO wait a WHILE WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING IF YOU WAIT TOO LONG TO REPLACE YOUR SYSTEM.
You probably already know that replacing an AC system in the summer will take longer than doing it during the off-season, simply because demand is greater and all available resources are busy on other jobs. As we near the summer months the demand for R22 system replacements is going to skyrocket. If your system finally breaks down on the hottest days of the summer, your business or your family might face a considerable wait for a new air conditioning system.
At JED Heating and Cooling, we understand that the R22 refrigerant phase out is going to cause a lot of headaches and unexpected expense for system owners, especially businesses. Feel free to reach out to us, and New Equipment Install Estimates are always FREE at JED Heating and Cooling, Inc.!
