2010—the production of new refrigerant, R22 has been reduced by 65%. This has caused less supply to be available, and in the past few years, R22 has more than tripled in price in just 2 years (as of summer 2013).
2015—the production of new refrigerant, R22 has reduced by 90%! This will likely cause a severe shortage of R-22 and the price will likely rise even more dramatically.
2020—the production of new refrigerant, R22 has been reduced by 99.5%, effectively eliminating its availability. At this point, recycled refrigerant or replacement refrigerants will be the only options and the price of recycled R22 will go even higher due to lack of supply.
2030—the production and use of R22 will be completely banned.
We offer a choice among the top HVAC system manufacturers: American Standard, Carrier, Bosch, Goodman, and Amana. These air conditioning systems are factory assembled, wired, and tested for dependability, economy, and comfort.
Although, we give you the options and can install any brand that you want, we do primarily install Amana products for a number of reasons. First, Amana has the best warranty in the industry. They offer a lifetime replacement warranty on heat exchangers and compressors for most of the equipment that we install! Clearly, Amana has a lot of confidence in their products, or they would not offer such a great warranty. Second, in our experience, Amana has had the best parts availability. We installed Lennox equipment for more than 40 years, because Lennox made great equipment! However, we moved away from Lennox for their parts availability. When you replace your system, it should last a minimum of 15 years before you have to think about replacing your system. But Lennox has had several products, where they stopped producing replacement parts and instead push people to replace systems. We do not think it's ethical to install equipment that will be impossible to repair. Home owners should have the option to repair or replace, which is why we have been happy with Amana's parts availability. Third, Unlike most manufacturing, Amana air conditioners are made in the USA!
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. An air conditioner is the outdoor unit that cools air and sends it to the indoor unit for circulation through your home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life. And when you let us help you choose the right air conditioner and install it in your home, you can trust that it will perform the way we say it will!
