Dallas, Oregon Air Conditioner Replacement and What You Need to Know About R-22

If your cooling system was purchased prior to 2010, it’s more than likely that it uses a refrigerant known as R-22. This particular refrigerant is being phased out, mainly because it is harmful to the environment. Its replacement R410-A is more eco-friendly, but it isn’t any more energy efficient. However, unless you replace an older cooling system with one that uses R410-A, you might find that it is more difficult to have your system serviced properly.

repair and replacement

R-22 is no longer being manufactured, and older AC units can only be serviced with recycled R-22. As less of this refrigerant is available, homeowners will find themselves in a position where they must replace their existing air conditioner or have it modified to use R410-A.

Air Conditioning Repair Dallas

Most homeowners and commercial business owners will experience the need to have their AC unit repaired at least a few times throughout its lifetime. This scenario is more likely if you don’t have a properly sized system, because units that are too small run constantly and systems that are too big cycle on and off frequently. Both types of situations can lead to wear and tear on the components of your AC unit.

In order to figure out what size Unit is going to offer the highest level of efficiency, you need to consider:

  • The number of floors and rooms in your home or commercial building
  • The total square footage of the living space
  • Climate and sunlight
  • Insulation quality

Efficiency Ratings and Your Cooling System

maximize your efficiency

Understanding the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) is an important part of finding the perfect central air conditioning system for your home or commercial business. Since 2006, the Federal Government has mandated that all manufacturers produce AC units with a minimum SEER of 13 and that they include the SEER on each system. The SEER provides consumers with an idea of how well the unit will consume and use energy.

What you need to know:

  • AC units with the highest energy efficiency have a SEER between 20 and 23
  • AC units with moderate to good energy efficiency have a SEER between 14 and 19

The Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) gives you an idea of the cooling capacity for the AC system that you have installed. Systems with higher EERs provide better cooling capacities.

The Benefits of a Two-Stage Compressor

A single-stage compressor operates on one level only, leading to shorter operating periods and more noise. It also creates uneven temperatures.

A two-stage compressor operates on two different levels or modes. It is designed to cool your home during mild-weather days as well as during hot-weather days. As a result, AC units using a two-stage compressor operate more efficiently since they adjust their performance to accommodate the differences in temperature. If you have an AC unit using a two-stage compressor installed, you can expect:

  • Quieter performance
  • Even temperatures
  • Reduced moisture in the air

Heating & Cooling FAQ

  • Why should I get a new HVAC system?
    It can often be difficult for home and business owners to tell if it’s time to upgrade their heating and cooling system. Loren's Heating & Air can assist you in this process. We want you to understand the pros and cons of continuing to repair and maintain your current system versus upgrading and making the investment in a new system. Some of the most important things to consider are increased energy efficiency, updated components, rebates and incentives, better home comfort and indoor air quality, and more effective heating and cooling.
  • Why are air conditioner efficiency ratings important?
    In 2006, the Federal Government made it mandatory for all central air conditioning systems to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of the cooling system’s performance. On the highest end of performance, cooling units are rated as high 23 SEER. As with anything, the better performance, the higher the cost. For a system with moderate to good efficiency, you should look for a model with a SEER rating of between 14 and 18. The EER, or the Energy Efficiency Rating, provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the system that you’ve had installed. The higher the EER number, the better the system’s cooling capacity.
  • What are the different types of air conditioner refrigerant?
    If you have an air conditioning system that requires the old type of refrigerant, R-22, your system is still usable but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. R410-A is now the required standard for newer systems and has less environmental impact relative to the older refrigerant. Eventually, you will need to replace your air conditioner with one that uses R410-A, or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. The type of refrigerant your AC uses is only one of many reasons to consider upgrading, and if your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced to boost energy efficiency, lessen environmental impact, and make sure you are operating a safe system. Not only will an upgraded cooling system make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it’ll also save you money on your annual cooling costs. Loren's Heating & Air in Salem, OR, offers the highest quality air conditioner replacement services.
  • How is furnace efficiency measured?
    Furnace energy efficiency is calculated with the AFUE, or the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE is a rating that compares how much heat a furnace will produce relative to the amount of energy necessary to produce the heat. If a furnace is rated at 85 percent AFUE, it means 15 percent of the energy used is lost and 85 percent actually becomes heat for your home or business.
  • What is indoor air quality and why is it important?
    Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is a measurement of the amount of airborne particles and pollutants inside your home or building. Because properties are being constructed to be more energy efficient, they are also becoming more airtight, meaning that fresh air often does not have a way to enter and circulate. This is one of the reasons why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, leading to a host of allergy and respiratory issues. Fortunately, IAQ products such as air filters, air purifiers, and humidifiers work in conjunction with your central AC and heating unit to decrease the prevalence of dust, dander, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other potentially harmful particles in your indoor air. Our team can work with you to find the right solution to fit your needs.
