First, these heating in addition to cooling units are quite old, which makes them far less efficient than the current Heating & A/C models
So we are now entering 2020. That number sort of hurts my brain a bit. I just can’t get over the fact that all of us are going into the third decade of the current millennium. It seems as though Y2K was not more than a year ago, but it’s been two decades ago! However, there is no lack of drama surrounding this new decade. The presidential race should be a slobberknocker. Who even knows what that will end up looking like? NOt only that, there is a sizable Heating & A/C regulation rearing its ugly head, too. On the first day of the current year, the Heating & A/C refrigerant R 22 is no longer permissible to be manufactured. This will affect some corporations in addition to homeowners who still are the owners of old HVAC systems. All commercial as well as residential Heating & A/C models have been manufactured without R 22 for several years now, but even so, there are still some remaining Heating & A/C systems that are using R 22. For those folks, there are some decisions they will have to decide on. The ban will make the price for R 22 go through the roof and into the sky. That’s if you are still able to even locate a place to purchase it. There will be those who will hoard this refrigerant hoping to sell it for big bucks. But really, sticking with an Heating & A/C system that was manufactured to use R 22 does not make good sense. First, these heating in addition to cooling units are quite old, which makes them far less efficient than the current Heating & A/C models. Throw in the cost of needing an R 22 recharge, and then simply upgrading your HVAC systems becomes the best choice. I am pretty sure if I was having to deal with this issue, I would just replace the old Heating & A/C the next time it needed a freon boost.
