The Next Generation of Cooling Refrigerants.

Stored in your air conditioner’s coils, refrigerants are liquids that cool and dehumidify your air. Without refrigerants, air conditioning would not be possible. For a long time, the most common AC refrigerant was R-22 (Freon), but in 2012 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated the phase-out of R-22 through the Clean Air Act. By 2020, it will no longer be legal to produce R-22 as a result of its destructive impact to the environment.

Introducing R-410A

R-410ATo reduce environmental impacts, all Lennox® products are now engineered to work with the new R-410A AC refrigerant. R-410A is EPA-recognized and doesn’t contain chlorine, making it ozone-friendly. You can feel great about using this refrigerant in Humble because it’ll help make your cooling system perform efficiently, reliably and quietly, and deliver the same cool comfort in the warmer months.

Additional Considerations

If your AC or heat pump was manufactured prior to 2010, it may not be R-410A-compatible. You might investigate upgrading your cooling system before R-22 is completely unavailable. The old refrigerant will become scarce in the next few years, costing you more to run your system effectively. The Lennox products we offer at Arrings A/C & Heating work with R-410A, so you can rest assured we have an AC or heat pump that better meets your needs. Be sure to avoid”alternate refrigerants that claim to work in R-22 systems. These include R-407C, R-438A and R-422, all of which can actually compromise your system’s performance.
