What is R22? What is the R22 Phase Out? What does that mean for me?

R22 (Freon) is what 95% of Americans currently use in their AC units to cool their homes. As of 2010, in response to EPA guidelines, units needing R22 (Freon) are no longer being produced. In place of R22 (Freon), units now utilize 410A (Puron). As a result of these changes, the price of R22 (Freon) has increased significantly. A system that uses R22 (Freon) cannot be refilled with 410A (Puron) gas. If a condenser or air handler stops working and cannot be repaired, the homeowner must replace the entire system with a system that uses 410A (Puron).

What does SEER mean?

SEER is an acronym for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Air handlers and condensers are each rated for efficiency. The total of those two rating numbers tells the total SEER rating of the system. The minimum Florida SEER standard is 13. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficiently the system runs. However, there is a balance between cost and efficiency because the higher the SEER rating, the higher the cost as well.

What type of system do I currently have in my home?

To discover what type of system you currently have in your home, go to the thermostat. If you have an emergency heat button, switch, or selection you likely have a heat pump system. If you only have cool off and heat button, switch, or selection you likely have a straight cool system.
