Refrigerants are what make air conditioning possible. Contained within the coils of an air conditioner, these liquid agents cool and dehumidify indoor air. For years, the most common refrigerant used in air conditioning systems was R-22.
In response to growing environmental concerns, production of systems using R-22 refrigerant is being phased out in favor of cooling systems that use chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant. Because R-410A contains no chlorine, it is considered ozone-friendly.
Older systems can still be recharged. If you air conditioning unit isn’t keeping you cool any longer, it could be as simple as replacing the refrigerant, or a sign of a more serious problem
