How R-22 Will Nickel and Dime You

Last month, Sensible Heating & Cooling devoted an entire blog to the Federal Government’s fast-approaching 2020 deadline to eliminate the production of R-22 refrigerant. In this edition we’re shedding more light on what production limitations mean for your wallet, if you continue to rely upon R-22 for cool air within your home.

While this 2015 Angie’s List Article, “What Is a Fair Price for R-22 Refrigerant?” is slightly dated, it best explains the R-22 situation. In it is an explanation that if your AC unit calls for R-22 and has any cracks, it will continuously leak the refrigerant necessary for operation and require you to pay increasingly higher prices per pound to maintain its functioning.

Have a read of the article. If it motivates you to seek confirmation of whether your AC is R-22 refrigerant-reliant and/or any leaks are present, call Sensible Heating & Cooling at 720-876-7166. Our highly trained and skilled technicians will complete a thorough analysis of your unit. We’re currently waiving our standard $89 diagnostic fee, as well as providing free estimates for new equipment and system replacement.
