Understanding the Difference between R410-A and R-22

carrier-repair-dealerR410-A is the new refrigerant of choice due to its eco-friendly nature It doesn’t contain chlorine like earlier refrigerants, so it is ozone friendly and better for the environment. R410-A is currently being used in all AC units manufactured after 2010. Older air conditioners used R-22, a refrigerant that is being phased out because it isn’t good for the environment.

Silverton, Oregon Air Conditioner Replacement

You can still use your existing AC unit even if it has R-22 in it. However, only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. Eventually, you’ll need to replace your unit or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. If your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced. Not only can an upgrade make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it will probably be more energy efficient, offering you savings on your annual cooling costs. Here at Loren’s in Silverton, Oregon, we provide quality air conditioner replacement.

Reasons why you should consider buying a newer AC unit:

  • Ozone friendly and better for the environment
  • Less expensive
  • Should be available throughout your lifetime

A Look at Efficiency Ratings

The Federal Government has made it mandatory (since 2006) for all central air conditioning units to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER refers to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, a measure of how well your AC unit will perform. Cooling units offering the highest level of energy efficiency will have SEER ratings as high as 23. However, these units are more expensive. For moderate to good efficiency, the model that you choose should have a SEER rating between 14 and 18. The EER rating refers to the Energy Efficiency Rating and provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the equipment that you have installed. The higher the EER is, the greater the cooling capacity of your unit is.

Benefits of Installing a Digital Thermostat

Installing a digital thermostat to control the temperature, even while you are asleep or at your place of employment, is the second best way to save on the cost to cool your home. A digital thermostat can do all of the following tasks:

  • Program interior temperature for multiple days and times
  • Allow you to lower or raise the temperature setting remotely
  • Control interior humidity levels
