As the temperatures continue to climb this summer, you’ve probably started thinking more about your air conditioning system. For most people, they rarely give it a thought until it comes time to flip the switch and let the cool air flow.
When was the last time you scheduled a maintenance visit specifically for your air conditioning system?
In order for your air conditioning unit to work at peak performance, a little TLC each year will make it run more efficiently. But you might be operating with a couple of myths in mind that are holding you back.
Myth #1: Maintenance means refilling the refrigerant, and that can be expensive
The fact of the matter is, if your refrigerant needs refilling (recharging) during a tune up, it’s because there is a leak in the system. Refrigerant isn’t like windshield washer fluid in your car, where you have to keep a gallon on hand and fill it up. While it’s a good idea to make sure everything in your system is properly maintained, it’s to ensure your system is operating correctly.
Myth #2: Your old air conditioning unit can continue running for years
Like every appliance in your home, updates are made all the time, thanks to technological advances. If you have an older air conditioner, it may still use R-22 refrigerant, which has been proven to have harmful effects on the environment.
R-22 is no longer being manufactured in North America, but you can still obtain recycled R-22 should your older air conditioner need a recharge. However, if your air conditioning unit still uses this old and outdated refrigerant, your unit is probably not operating efficiently. By upgrading to a new air conditioner, you may instantly reap the benefits by having a more efficient air conditioning system, which reduces how much you spend on your utility bills each month.
By 2020, R-22 will no longer be available at all.
