Due to harmful effects on the ozone layer by R22, as of January 1st, 2020, R22 will no longer be sold or imported into the United States. This means if your system has a refrigerant leak, the option to add refrigerant will not be available and if your current system cannot be retrofitted to accept the new refrigerant, a new system will need to be purchased. STACCP recommends for owners of R22 air conditioners to plan ahead and really weigh their options when faced with a repair or replace situation. As R22 is no longer produced, R22 air conditioner owners will need to use reclaimed R22 or previously produced quantities to service their R22 air conditioner, more than likely at a very high price.

Owners of R22 air conditioners may have the option to retrofit their system to accept the new refrigerant or to replace proactively. To find out if you can retrofit your system an inspection of your unit will need to be done by an HVAC licensed technician. Beware of those wanting to add more R22 into your system, as you will more than likely experience another leak and have to spend more money in the future. A trust worthy technician will attempt to repair the leak if you are unable to replace. In addition, as mentioned above R22 is only increasing in price as we get closer to 2020. If you currently own an R22 system and are not ready to replace, it is important to maintain your system properly.

As of 2010, the installation of R22 HVAC systems became illegal, therefore if your system was installed after 2010 more than likely it is a system that uses 410A which is the new refrigerant. The outside unit will either have an R22 nameplate or 410A name plate and that is another way to find out what type of unit you have. If you have any questions please feel free to call our office!

1. Stop Cooling the Whole Neighborhood

Unless your home is brand new, cold air inside it is probably finding a way out through worn out window seals and doors, a poorly insulated attic, or other miscellaneous cracks.

You can do an ‘air leak audit’ of your home yourself by running your hand along doors and windows to feel if cold air is escaping. You can caulk around the windows and add extra insulation around the doors.

2. Thermostat Placement is Key

Making sure your thermostat is on the proper wall in your home can play a huge roll in how well your AC works. If this thermostat is placed on a wall right next to a window, your AC will want to turn on more often than it needs to, thinking the room is a different temperature than it really is.

3. Shut The Blinds

When you let the hot sun in through window panes, this won’t just heat up your thermostat, it’ll heat you up too. We recommend closing your blinds during the hottest point of the day. This will help insulate your windows which will stop any cool air inside from escaping outside.

4. Use Your Fan

In most cases, you will not need to bring the temperature down with your thermostat to feel cooler. If you use a ceiling fan, this can actually make a room feel as if it is 10 degrees cooler! It also uses only 10 percent of the energy a central air conditioner would use. How “cool” is that?

5. Higher Temps

AC systems tend to cycle on and off if the thermostat is set to a lower temperature when you are not home. This is inefficient for your system. You are better off setting the temperature on your thermostat to a little bit higher, if you are not going to be there, that way when you get home you can lower it to your needs. If it is higher, it will most likely not be cycling on and off all day to compete with outside temperatures. This will save you money and make your AC work more efficiently for longer periods of time.

Many people have a programmable thermostat to set higher temps when they are at work and lower temps when they return home.
