How The Phaseout of R-22 Could Impact You

If you have an HVAC system, and most modern homes do, your heating and cooling might be running on a refrigerant known as R-22 freon. Why does this matter to you? Because in just a few months, the use of R-22 will continue phasing out in a big way! Here’s what you need to know about the end of this ozone-depleting substance that might be lurking in your home’s HVAC system! 

It all began in January of 2010, when the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented a ban on the production and import of R-22, with the exception of servicing the needs of existing equipment. Why did they do this? Simply because R-22 is one of the most common emission gasses which destroy the ozone layer; the shield that protects the earth from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Since R-22 is one of these harmful chemicals, the United States has committed to collaborating internationally to regulate, and phase out ozone-depleting substances, including R-22.

It’s The Most Wonderful DRY Time Of The Year!

Noticing cold-like symptoms, static, and a higher energy bill?

Your home might be a victim of a low humidity level, and humidity plays a huge role in the comfort of your home!

The recommended indoor humidity level is 45%, yet the average home cab be four times below that level! When you combine low humidity with the home heating season, it can result in a myriad of health issues and interior home problems. Typical signs of low humidity include: health problems such as dry skin, nose bleeds, sore throat, and increased asthma irritation; warping of your home’s wooden flooring, furniture, and even musical instruments; cracks in walls and ceilings; and static electricity; and an increase in utility bills as your HVAC must work twice as hard to create an idea comfort level.
