The Death of R-22 Refrigerant

family-footer

There is no longer enough R-22 refrigerant to meet demand. As a result the price of R22 has risen in the last 5 years from $20 a pound to $100+ a pound. In the last 3 months, R-22 has been impossible to obtain in the Ridgeland market.

Dent AC has been exclusively selling R410a systems for the last 10 years. However, some companies sold R22 systems until 2015. This means that there are a lot of relatively new condensers in the area that have a fairly long remaining life.

If your system is low on R-22, the ideal solution to this problem is replace your system with a new higher efficiency system that uses R410a. If your budget doesn’t permit replacement or your condenser is less than 10 years old you might consider using a different type of R-22 that is compatible with existing R-22 systems.

There is a conversion procedure that needs to be followed but the converted system will cool equally as well and warranties will be honored by the manufacturers. If your system is low or out of R-22 and you are being given an outrageously high price, call us at (601) 300-8317. The price of conversion is much less expensive than using R-22 or replacing a newer system. Need a new system? Dent AC can help. Need a healthier, more comfortable life? We can change the way you feel about your home.

I had previously had problems with backup in my home after new gas lines were put in. I was told by Atmos that I had a leak in my pipe just recently. I was told that it was roots in my sewer pipe. I called Dent Plumbers to make re...
