R-22 is the cooling agent used in air conditioning systems. Every air conditioning system needs a refrigerant that creates the cool air.
As necessary as R-22 is to the optimal performance of your air conditioner, you do not want to handle R-22. If you believe your AC’s refrigerant lines might need recharging, you will need to call a professional technician to inspect your air conditioning system. A Reese Services technician can give your AC a full check-up before you need it to do any serious cooling in the hottest days of the summer ahead.
There are several types of refrigerants and they are classified by chemical makeup. Newer units may contain the R-410A coolant. R-410A is a good choice as a long-term coolant option for both light commercial and residential air conditioning systems. The reason for this is that it combines highly efficient performance. It is also energy efficient and easy to use in most air conditioning systems. Puron®, also known as R-410A, is approved by the EPA to replace R-22 and is the world's first, long-term solution to ozone depletion. Reese Services is an authorized dealer of Bryant heating and cooling systems.
A Reese Services technician will need to do a thorough routine maintenance check up on your AC unit. A technician will check that the air filter, blower wheel, evaporator coil, and condenser coil are all clean. If any of the parts are dirty, it can cause symptoms similar to a unit that is low on refrigerant. If refrigerant is added under these conditions, the unit could be damaged.
Contact Reese Services today to schedule your summer maintenance check up on your AC unit. Even if your AC unit is working efficiently, consider a check up to ensure that your coolant levels are the right level. Do not wait until the hottest days of the summer to put your AC system to the test.
