The Next Generation of Cooling Refrigerants. An air conditioner or heat pump uses its refrigerant to cool and dehumidify the air before it’s circulated around your home. This liquid is found 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 because of environmental concerns. In fact, this phase-out was mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Clean Air Act. Production of R-22 will cease by 2020. Introducing R-410A Chlorine-free and ozone-friendly, R-410A is recognized by the EPA. R-410A will keep your home cool without hurting the environment. Even better news, Lennox’s highest efficiency systems are engineered to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system operate efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for dependability, quiet operation and improved dehumidification, so you can stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At Smyth Air Conditioning Inc in Lake Worth, our cooling products 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 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.
