It’s been estimated that the majority of air conditioning systems in the U.S. will have to be replaced soon. That’s because older cooling systems use R-22 refrigerant–better known as Freon—which will no longer be manufactured after 2020. Freon is considered a greenhouse gas and harms the environment when released into the air.
Because of the impending phase-out, less Freon is being made. This has resulted in rapidly dwindling supplies—and skyrocketing prices.
Some people need to add more Freon because the contractor who installed their system did not properly charge the system with refrigerant (about 7 out of 10 systems in the U.S. are not charged properly).
In older systems, Freon can start leaking due to years of wear and tear, which causes valves, seals or metal components in the air conditioning coil to fail. Even a small leak can reduce efficiency dramatically and shorten equipment life. If you lose too much Freon, your system cannot generate cool air.
We’ll tell you about your options in new systems. All A/C systems that Bottini Fuel installs use an economical and environmentally–friendly refrigerant instead of expensive Freon.
By acting now, you may also qualify for our current spring special: five years of 0% financing on selected systems—including a traditional Heil central air conditioning system or a Mitsubishi ductless cooling system.* Payments start as low as $120 a month—interest free! This is one of the best deals we’ve ever offered—but it only remains in effect until May 1.
