We have received notice from several vendors today of a pending price increase on R22 refrigerant. If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old it is likely you have R22 refrigerant in your air conditioning system.
Swinson Air Conditioning’s last major purchase of R22 refrigerant was about 5 years ago. At that time we began a company transition away from R22 towards replacement ‘bridge’ refrigerants. We successfully completed that move so that refrigerants are not an issue our customers must consider.
We convert systems several times per day reclaiming the used refrigerant and installing our preferred replacement product. It has not been without challenges as the refrigerant properties are different. But we are able to change your existing equipment to eliminate the need for R22 refrigerant. Some of the components are off the shelf and readily available. American Standard/Trane Electronic Expansion Valves are converted by a little solid-state gizmo we designed and built ourselves.
Our converted systems can be recharged at less than half the cost of R22 saving you money. Everyone here has trained and developed our techniques to allow a seamless move away from obsolete R22 refrigerant.
