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 contained within the coils of your home’s cooling system, but one of the most typical refrigerants used for a very long time – the R-22 (Freon) is now being phased out 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 harming the environment. Even better news, Lennox’s most highly efficient systems are engineered to use this AC refrigerant, which can help your system operate efficiently. The same Lennox systems are known for reliability, quiet operation and improved dehumidification, so you’re sure to stay comfortable. Additional Considerations At JonAire Inc in Pahrump, our cooling products can work with R-410A. If your system was made before 2010, you may want to consider replacing your cooling system now, before R-22 is hard to find. Some manufacturers sell 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.
