Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
One of the best benefits of R-410A refrigerant is its exceptionally quiet operation. Other key benefits of R-410A and the air conditioning systems that use it are higher EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) better heat-pump performance, increased efficiency and reliability. There is also no ozone-depleting chemicals. R410A has the lowest Global Warming TEWI (Total Equivalent Warming Impact). Probably the most important benefit of R-410A is that it will still be available long after the production of R-22 units is stopped in 2010. Although contractors are still using the lower pricing of R-22 equipment as a selling point when talking to their customers, many smart ones are now also selling the environmental benefits of R-410A.They are also selling the benefits of the new technology and the improved comfort level of the new R-410A equipment.
There are many efficiency and economical benefits to R-410A. It has become very important for techs to inform their customers of the many benefits of R-410A products. Some of the benefits of R-410A are low energy consumption, increased product performance, no ozone depleting chemicals (no chlorine), and improved product reliability. The new products that use R-410A are state of the art technology, feature enhanced heat pump and air conditioning performance and meet the clean air act requirements for 2010.
For many years most air conditioners and heat pumps sold around the world used a refrigerant called R-22. Homeowners and business owners now have the ability to ask for an air conditioner or heat pump that uses the more efficient and environmentally friendlier refrigerant called R-410A. When you buy a new air conditioning or heat pump system by selecting R-410A you virtually eliminate the possibility that refrigerant leaking from your system could contribute to the hole in the ozone layer. You will also be investing in a new comfort system that will last you for many years to come. This is because R-410A (a chlorine-free refrigerant) complies with governmental legislation to phase out ozone-depleting refrigerants well ahead of the 2010 deadline. Another thing to consider is that the costs of R-22 will begin to rapidly rise when the production of R-22 units are phased out by January 1, 2010. Because of this there will be less R-22 refrigerant produced.
One of the greatest benefits of R-410A is that it will still be available for a long after the production of R-22 units ceases in 2010. If you are installing an air conditioner or heat pump in the near future, make sure that you specify that the unit uses R-410A refrigerant.
Do not allow the installation of a R-22 unit even if the pricing is much lower. The future costs of a repair to the unit will more than offset the savings now.
