So 2020 will be here soon.
- That number sort of hurts my brain a bit.
I just can’t know that we are going into the second decade of the modern millennium. I feel as though Y2K was just last week, but that was actually 20 years ago now. However, there is no lack of drama in the coming dawn of the modern decade. The presidential race should be a fiasco. I can’t even imagine how all that will wash out. However, there is a crucial Heating plus Air Conditioning concern to be dealt with now, too. On the first day of the modern year, the Heating plus Air Conditioning refrigerant R 22 is illegal to make in the US. This will affect some suppliers plus homeowners depending on their HVAC system. All commercial plus residential Heating plus Air Conditioning models have been created without R 22 for the last 7 years or more. However, some people still have Heating plus Air Conditioning systems that still utilize this style of refrigerant. For those owners, there are some decisions to make. The ban will make the price for R 22 be higher than gold. That’s if you are still able to find it. There will be those who will hoard this refrigerant hoping to sell for a fortune. But really, sticking with a Heating plus Air Conditioning system that continues to use R 22 is not too wise. First, these heating plus cooling units are probably at the end of their life spans. They are also far less efficient than the modern Heating plus Air Conditioning units. Throw in the cost of having to get an R 22 recharge plus it just is reasonable to simply replace the Heating plus Air Conditioning unit. I suppose if I was having to confront the new refrigerant rules, I would just replace the old Heating plus Air Conditioning.
