Upgrade Your AC for This Important Reason

Monday, May 24th, 2021

How much do you know about refrigerant? If you’re a savvy homeowner, you might know that refrigerant is the substance that your AC uses to transfer heat from the inside of your home to the outside. Or, you might just be comfortable knowing it’s in your AC and it just “helps” with the cooling process. Regardless of how involved you’d like to be in the cooling process of your AC, it’s important to know what refrigerant is.

That being said, do you know what type of refrigerant your AC uses? Now we’re getting into the juicy part of this blog post. Different air conditioners utilize different types of refrigerant, and if you’ve got an older system there’s a small chance that it uses R-22 refrigerant which was phased out in 2020.
