Cooling Refrigerants of the Future. An air conditioner or heat pump counts on its refrigerant to cool and dehumidify the air before it’s streamed back into your home. This liquid is contained within the coils of your cooling system, but one of the most common refrigerants used for a very long time – the R-22 (Freon) is now being gradually eliminated in response to environmental concerns. In fact, this phase-out was mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. By 2020, R-22 will no longer be in production. Introducing R-410A Chlorine-free and ozone-friendly, R-410A is recognized by the EPA. That means it’ll keep your AC running cool without harming the environment. Even better news, Lennox’s most efficient systems are engineered to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system operate efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for durability, quiet operation and improved dehumidification, so you’re sure to stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At Durable Service in Holdrege, our cooling models can work with R-410A. If you have a system that was made prior to 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is scarce. Some manufacturers offer 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.
