If your AC system was built before 2010, chances are it runs on the refrigerant R-22 (Freon). If you\u2019ve needed one or more Freon charges over the years, you\u2019ve probably noticed the rise in prices from one charge and leak repair to the next. That\u2019s because Freon will no longer be manufactured or imported in the United States beginning January 1, 2020. Now you are still allowed to use your air conditioner (AC) or heating system that utilizes R-22, but a repair that requires refrigerant may result in a costly bill. The combined cost of the repair and Freon could be $1,500 or more. So, the question to ask yourself is this: \u201cIs it worth paying that much to repair an AC system that\u2019s at least 10 years old?\u201d Most of our customers say, \u201cNo!\u201d In fact, instead of waiting for their system to develop a leak, they\u2019ve been proactively replacing their systems with more efficient versions, which now contain Freon\u2019s replacement R-410A. Why the Change? More than 30 years ago R-22 was found to be ozone-depleting, leading numerous countries, including the United States, to develop and implement a phase-out plan while developing the eco-friendlier R-410A replacement.
