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 circulated around your home. This liquid is contained within the coils of your cooling system, but one of the most typical refrigerants used for a very long time – the R-22 (Freon) is now being replaced because of 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 damaging the environment. Additionally, Lennox’s most efficient systems are designed to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system perform efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for reliability, quiet operation and improved dehumidification, so you can stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At Dynamic Comfort Solutions in Locust, our cooling products can work with R-410A. If your system was installed 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.
