New EPA Regulation Has Potential to Impact Air Conditioning Repair Costs

As the hot days of Summer are coming fast, so are the calls for A/C Repair at Around The Town Heating and Cooling.

“Phones have been ringing off of the hook. Many people are getting upset because they don’t have air conditioning in their house,” said Around The Town Heating and Cooling.

“People don’t want to be without air conditioning, That’s why you should call us. We guarantee to leave the customer satisfied and taken care of. ” said an Around The Town Heating and Cooling Contractor.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been phasing out the refrigerant R-22, a type of coolant for your unit. It’s also commonly referred to as Refrigerant.

They’re claiming the unit’s are harmful to the environment, so companies are replacing Refrigerant with another coolant, 4-10A refrigerant.

However, 4-10A units can’t be used in older systems, leaving homeowners with an expensive choice. The cost of the R-22 has driven sky high, and to refill R-22 prices have gone up to $100-$130 a pound, rising more than 500 percent over the past 10 years. One of the biggest things you can do to save and protect your A/C unit is to do routine maintenance and checkups.
