Most HVAC service staff are trained in the proper ways to add refrigerant whether your system requires r22 or r410a.

Reasons It Makes Sense To Have An Air Conditioning Recharge Performed

There are many reasons why investing in an air conditioning recharge makes sense.  Some examples include:

  • Prevention of dramatic dips in performance when temperatures in St Louis spike in the high 90’s during the Summer months.
  • A decrease in humidity levels inside your home.  Making your home more comfortable.
  • An increase in the life of your AC system.  Maintaining proper levels of air conditioning refrigerant puts less stress on your AC unit.  Over time, this can prevent costly repairs due to your system not running as much.
  • Preventing frozen AC lines.  When an AC unit is running on a low amount of refrigerant, your AC lines are much more likely to freeze over due to your condenser overworking itself to keep your home cool.  This can lead to complete failure of your air conditioning system and is most likely to happen when you need your rely on your HVAC system the most.

Your AC Coolant Type Can Drastically Impact The Cost Of An Air Conditioning Recharge

It is important to know what type of refrigerant your AC unit runs on. If you own an air conditioner that is over ten years old, chances are it runs off of r22 refrigerant. Having an r22 system recharged can be slightly more costly than some of the newer models that run off of r410a. The reason for this due to government regulation that was put in place during the 1980s. Due to environmental harm, r22 coolant has been gradually being phased out of production. Over time, r22 refrigerant has become much more expensive. This factor should be weighed when trying to decide on repairing or replacing your AC system.
