Add Freon Or Convert to Puron?

Your HVAC Team in Easton, PA Explains Why It Is Better to Get A New AC

If you have AC trouble that involves a Freon (R-22) leak, topping it up is a temporary and costly solution. Once a standard refrigerant for air conditioners, it is now being phased out due to environmental concerns. With manufacturing being reduced, prices of R-22 have also skyrocketed. Our HVAC specialists explain the benefits of converting to a cooling unit using Puron (R410A) as soon as possible. 

Advantages of Switching to a Puron AC 

  • Environmentally friendly:  Puron has the EPA’s stamp of approval. Unlike Freon, it is not made from chlorine and its by-products do not harm the environment.
  • Improved air quality: Being non-toxic and non-flammable, it promotes cleaner outdoor and indoor air. 
  • Quiet operation: Many air conditioners and heat pumps using R410A are so quiet that you can barely tell they are running.
  • Affordable: Reduction in Freon manufacturing until it is completely phased out in 2022 has raised prices. Puron, on the other hand, is more easily available as well as affordably priced.
  • Energy-efficient: Since it operates at a higher pressure that other refrigerants, it cools more quickly, thus reducing the amount of energy used and the figure on your utility bills.
  • Reduced operational costs: We all know that older and outdated equipment (with Freon or other refrigerants) is more expensive to service and repair. An added advantage of new units with non-corrosive Puron is that their tubing and casing is likely to last longer. 
  • Reliable: High-efficiency ACs with Puron have proven to be the most reliable cooling solutions available in the market today.
