Understanding the Difference Between R410-A and R-22

Carrier dealer

R410-A is the new refrigerant of choice due to its eco-friendly nature It doesn’t contain chlorine like earlier refrigerants, so it is ozone friendly and better for the environment. R410-A is currently being used in all AC units manufactured after 2010. Older air conditioners used R-22, a refrigerant that is being phased out because it isn’t good for the environment.

Silverton, Oregon Air Conditioner Replacement

You can still use your existing AC unit even if it has R-22 in it. However, only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. Eventually, you’ll need to replace your unit or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. If your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced. Not only can an upgrade make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it will probably be more energy efficient, offering you savings on your annual cooling costs. Here at Loren’s in Silverton, Oregon, we provide quality air conditioner replacement.

Reasons why you should consider buying a newer AC unit:

  • Ozone friendly and better for the environment
  • Less expensive
  • Should be available throughout your lifetime

A Look at Efficiency Ratings

The Federal Government has made it mandatory (since 2006) for all central air conditioning units to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER refers to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, a measure of how well your AC unit will perform. Cooling units offering the highest level of energy efficiency will have SEER ratings as high as 23. However, these units are more expensive. For moderate to good efficiency, the model that you choose should have a SEER rating between 14 and 18. The EER rating refers to the Energy Efficiency Rating and provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the equipment that you have installed. The higher the EER is, the greater the cooling capacity of your unit is.

Benefits of Installing a Digital Thermostat


Choosing an energy-efficient cooling unit is the most important strategy you can use to lower your utility bills. Installing a digital thermostat to control the temperature, even while you are asleep or at your place of employment, is the second best way to save on the cost to cool your home. A digital thermostat can do all of the following tasks:

  • Program interior temperature for multiple days and times
  • Allow you to lower or raise the temperature setting remotely
  • Control interior humidity levels

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.
