Rules ENVIRONMENT, which come into force on 1 January 2012, are part of a gradual change to a new class of units for cooling the window, central air conditioning systems, heat pumps and sensational novels used to cool the large residential and office buildings. TIME FOR A NEW UNIT? The total cooling gradually declining. Some heating and cooling companies offer to replace the old equipment now to accommodate the new coolers, and some utilities offer rebates. But there is nothing in the instructions to get rid of the old system before its time. For many years the preferred refrigerant was R-22 also known as HCFC-22 or Freon 22, a brand name. But R-22, when released into the atmosphere, the ozone layer that shields the earth from dangerous ultraviolet radiation.
In 1990, the federal Clean Air Act was amended, to prohibit the placement, recently transformed into the R-22 equipment made after December 31, 2009. Home replacement for R-22 residential cooling – HFC called HFC-410A. Marketed under names like Puron, AZ Genetron 20 and Suva, it was recognized EPA replacement of R-22 in 1996. But it's not just a question of draining the old coolant and including a new one. Systems should be more heavily built to accommodate the HFC-410A with high blood pressure, making them more efficient. Equipment developed for the new refrigerant, said Julius Banks, head of the EPA for a refreshing recycling programs, "usually built better, and will have lower leakage and greater efficiency energy.
So for his whole life, you'll save money and protect the environment. " Along with lower energy bills, some manufacturers and utilities offer concessions on the new equipment, including Carrier Corporation and Connecticut Light and Power, although no concessions are not actually in the state of New York at this time. In addition, the federal economic stimulus bill provides tax credits up to $ 1500 for purchase in this year or later, a very efficient residential heat pumps and central air conditioning systems.
