Heil Air Conditioner Replacement In Highland Park NJ

Recently, the Rausch family noticed that their air conditioner was having a difficult time keeping up with the summer heat. It was unable to create a cool and comfortable environment. Also, their energy bills were increasing without any logical explanation.

One day, our customers came home and noticed that their air conditioner was blowing warm air. To resolve their problem, they called Skylands Energy. We dispatched a technician to their home right away.

Ted Francisco, one of our expert technicians, inspected their unit. He determined that it was old and outdated. It had a SEER 10 rating, indicating that its manufacture date was between 1992 and 2006 (the minimum requirement during that timeframe). In 2006, the minimum SEER requirement increased to 13, and in 2015, the government reset it to 14 SEER. Therefore, SEER ratings have come a long way since the manufacture date of the Rausch’s air conditioner. Furthermore, their air conditioner uses R-22 refrigerant, which is currently being phased out by the government. It is no longer in production.

Due to the age, the coolant type, and the inefficiency of the Rausch’s air conditioner, Ted recommended a Heil air conditioner replacement for their Highland Park NJ home.

Problem: The Rausch family was depending on an old and inefficient air conditioner that did not provide them with a comfortable environment. Their AC started blowing warm air, making the situation worse.

Solution: Skylands Energy installed a Heil a 3-Ton 16 SEER A/C Condenser (model NXA636GKA) and a Heil (model FXM4X3600A) 3-Ton Multiposition TXV Air Handler in their home.

What You Need To Know About The R-22 Phaseout

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set January 1, 2020, as the final date for the phaseout of R-22 refrigerant. It is no longer in production as of January 1. 2015. This phaseout has an enormous impact on owners of older air conditioners that use R-22 refrigerant. If you own one of those systems, read this article. We will discuss what you should know about the R-22 phaseout and what it means for your air conditioner’s future.

Options

If your old cooling system uses R-22, you have the option to do nothing and just wait for the day when your AC breaks down. Most air conditioners tend to break down in the peak of the summer heat. At that time, you’ll have to go without AC while you purchase and install a new system. The “doing nothing” option does have the huge disadvantage of going without AC at an inconvenient time.

Because R-22 will become unavailable, you could be proactive and replace your old system now. You have time to compare prices and find the appropriate system for your home or office.

You also have the option of retrofitting your old system. However, this does not work in all cases. If you can do so, then you’ll have to opt for a “legal” coolant to put into your old AC. cooling system. There’s no set cost for doing this, and it could actually cost you more than purchasing a new system. Also, consider the fact that if your system is malfunctioning, a retrofit might not be a smart way to go. After paying for an inspection and retrofit, costs could get out of hand and far exceed the cost of a fresh AC unit.

The Cost Of R-22 Refrigerant

The cost of R-22 is already on the rise and will quickly escalate as the phase-out date approaches. If you are still relying on an old R-22 unit, then a breakdown near the time of the phaseout could translate into excessive repair bills.

Making a “repair or replace” decision is one of the most important things an AC owner can do. However, it should be done as quickly as possible in order to avoid unpredictable expenses. Unpredictability usually leads to rushed decisions. In most cases, replacing a unit will cost less than repairing a unit that has an R-22 refrigerant leak.

It is important to note that R-22 supplies are already becoming strained, according to U.S. heating and cooling contractors. That means prices are already astronomical, making refrigerant leaks costly to repair for those who use an air conditioner that runs on R-22 coolant. Furthermore, supplies are dwindling, making access to this coolant very difficult.

Replacement Services

Demand for R-22 and AC replacement services will probably skyrocket during the summer of 2019, the last big warm spell before the phaseout date mandated by the EPA. That means anyone who waits to replace their system until the summer of 2019 is taking a huge financial risk. Replacing during the winter of 2018/2019 is a much smarter way to keep costs under control, install a new AC, and avoid the service shortage that is certain to take place next summer.

Business owners and homeowners who own multiple AC units might want to consider replacing them over the next year to spread out expenses. This way, they can avoid the problems associated with the looming phase-out date. Most HVAC experts note that the sooner an owner makes a replacement plan, the better. When it comes to AC repair and replacement, it’s always smarter to be proactive than to wait until the last minute, especially when there is a “legal” deadline on the horizon.

The Bottom Line For Homeowners

The time to act is now, not in three or six or 12 months. Costs for R-22 will continue to rise as supplies decrease. Owners who opt for early AC system replacement can take advantage and save money without compromising their comfort.

Review of Skylands Energy

We had our yearly cleaning of our oil burner. There was some rumbling in the system since last year and Ryan cleaned out the burner and it sounds much better. He was really good at explaining what the likely issues were. He also removed some bird nest material (including a now cooked egg) from the lower chimney. So I'm very happy with the work he did.
