If you have a cooling system that is eight to 15 years old, Don Fox of Fox Air Corp says this is the perfect time to upgrade. It will help the environment, save you money, and even provide a rebate in the process. New systems have many of the same benefits.
Environmentally Friendly Refrigerants
If your system is eight years or more, then you are using Freon as your refrigerant. According to Fox, Puron is a much more environmentally friendly way to run your system because it does not have chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Freon is considered dangerous for the ozone layer of the atmosphere and is being phased out. Puron, also known as R-410A, is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Cooling for Less
Fox says the new systems provide much higher efficiencies. “The equipment is twice as efficient,” he explains. “You can also use new technology to control your thermostat from your smart phone, only cooling your living space when you are actually using it. Land at the airport and control your temperature for your arrival home.”
Receive Utility Rebates While You Can
Manufacturer rebates seem here to stay, but utility rebates have been decreasing each year as more and more people upgrade and remove Freon from their systems. Whether you are seeking a federal tax credit or a rebate from your local power company, Fox Air walks you through the process so that you get the most savings possible.
Short Time to Cool Down
Fox says the timeframe depends on the size of the project. Even larger projects can be completed within a couple of weeks from initial consult to parts purchase to installation. “That means you can be cool with more than half of the really hot summer still to come if you call today,” he says.
