A Note From Tom


As of January 1st 2010, the air conditioning industry stopped shipping out equipment pre-charged with the old freon R-22.

The industry currently has, only in the lowest SEER available, equipment that will work with the old R22 freon. Here at Advanced Air, we only encourage the replacement of R22 equipment  as a last resort. 


After 1/1/2010, you may have to replace NEW equipment because of a failure involving a part of a system that uses R-22.

For example: You have a new R-22 air conditioner and the old coil fails. You could have to replace the New air conditioner in addition to the old coil.

We recommend replacing both the coil and condenser using R-410a (the new freon) when either fails to prevent replacing good new equipment at a later date. That does not mean we won't do a half system replacement, just that we want you to know ahead of time the repercussions.

On the matter of heatpumps, we will continue to replace only matched systems due to the likelihood of improper operation and that most warranties are voided.  The same logic is applicable for them as for the air conditioners, even when we can match them.

I understand that with our economic situation, none of us can afford to spend any more than we have to. If this makes your decision difficult, I'm truly sorry.
