American Heating and Air Conditioning was recently featured in a local news story written by WCPO. The article focused on the upcoming switch in air conditioner coolants from R-22 refrigerant to R-410A, which is better for the environment. Here’s an excerpt:
“The ozone-depleting chemical has been slowly phased out of use under the Montreal Protocol, and in 2020 its production in the United States will stop for good. Beforehand, scarcity will drive up the price of replacements and repairs to R-22-dependent cooling systems.
‘We in the industry already knew this was going to happen, but finally it’s creeping up and homeowners are starting to realize it because of the price,’ Greg Lamb, a service technician with American Heating and Air Conditioning, said.“
