This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart deAt Sanders Service Solutions, we are pleased to see that most of our customers are concerned enough about the environment to consider how their own heating and cooling choices affect it. Our air conditioning service company is a professional HVAC dealer located in Kingwood, Texas that uses HVAC system products that are friendly to the environment whenever possible. This includes using Puron as a refrigerant gas to power HVAC systems instead of Freon. If you are not familiar with either of these terms, read more to learn about the differences.
Freon is a refrigerant gas that transforms into liquid and allows your air conditioner to produce cool air and your heating system to produce warm air. Without refrigerant gas in your HVAC system, you would have the equivalent of a fan or a space heater. Freon is made with mineral oil, which unfortunately has been proven to have detrimental effects on the earth’s ozone layer. You may also have heard Freon referred to as hydrochloroflurocarbons, HCFC or HCFC-22.
Puron is an alternative to Freon that is made of synthetic oil. It is also referred to as R-410A. As compared to Freon, Puron is non-toxic, non-flammable and doesn’t cause environmental damage. It also helps heat pumps and air conditioners to operate more efficiently. Our service technicians have heard reports from customers that their energy costs after switching to Puron are up to 40 percent less.
In 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) modified the existing Clean Air Act to gradually phase out the use of Freon by heating and air conditioning service companies. The substance could still be used for HVAC systems that required it, but HVAC equipment manufacturers were told to cease production of new units that were powered by Freon. This law became mandatory on January 1, 2010. While there are still HVAC systems in existence that use Freon, the numbers are rapidly declining. As of January 1, 2020, the EPA will enforce a total ban on Freon. This means that the substance can no longer be manufactured or imported into the United States. Home and business owners will be required to replace units that operate on Freon by that date.
If you are concerned about the environmental impact of your home or business in Houston, contact Sanders Service Solutions for assistance. We will send a home energy auditor to your property to evaluate it for efficiency as well as address your environmental concerns. Our energy auditor will provide you with a written list of suggestions on changes you can make to improve energy efficiency and decrease the effect that your home or business has on the environment. We use a whole-house approach to energy conservation that was implemented by the EPA and the United States Department of Energy (DOE).Another way that we can assist you in your energy conservation efforts is helping you select a more efficient air conditioner or heating system. By upgrading now, you will save yourself the trouble of having to replace your HVAC system when the EPA imposes the Freon ban in 2020. Also, you have the potential of saving up to 40 percent on energy costs when you replace an old or inefficient air conditioner, heat pump or furnace. The EPA recommends replacement for air conditioners over 10 years old and heating systems more than 15 years old. The trained service technicians at our heating and air conditioning service company know what to look for when it comes to energy efficiency and environmental concerns. First, you should ensure that the new unit you are considering operates on Puron. This will prevent ozone layer depletion and save you money on operating costs at the same time. Our air conditioning service company can install the new unit if you decide to purchase one at this time. We will ensure that your new unit has enough Puron to get you through the summer before leaving the appointment. Another very important factor is the official energy efficiency rating of the unit. Air conditioners rely on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and heat pumps use the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). If your Houston area home or business uses a furnace instead, look for its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. The technicians at our heating and air conditioning service company will take the time to explain what these ratings mean and how you can use them to your advantage when upgrading to a more energy efficient HVAC unit.
