One important thing a homeowner can do for the environment is select a reputable company to install and service their cooling system. Another important thing a homeowner can do for the environment is purchase a highly energy efficient system.
Energy-efficient systems result in cost savings for the homeowner. Today’s best air conditioners use much less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid-1970s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save significantly on your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.
Refrigerants are what make air conditioning possible in cooling systems. For years, the most common refrigerant in air-conditioning systems was R-22, also known as Freon. Today, under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act, production of systems using R-22 is being phased out, and manufacturers have transitioned to cooling systems that use an EPA-recognized, chlorine-free refrigerant called R-410A.
Even though manufacturers are required to phase out production of R-22 equipment, use of R-22 is still permissible in systems manufactured prior to 2010. However, availability of R-22 supplies may become short in the coming years. So by choosing an R-410A system now, you are wisely planning ahead.
If your cooling system is more than 10 years old, it’s time to consider upgrading to a new system for greater comfort and energy efficiency, especially in light of the EPA’s new regulations.
