Things are changing with HVAC technology
I have seen this day approaching for several years.
So, of course, I have done truly nothing about it.
Mere months from now there will be a ban on R 22 refrigerant. That’s right, on January 1, 2020 this type Heating plus A/C refrigerant will be entirely illegal to produce in the USA. Given the impact on our global climate, I am easily all for it being banned. Chlorofluorocarbon reduction has made improvements in reducing the destruction to our ozone layer. But, I’m going to have to upgrade a heat pump that has been going for a little over twenty years. I made certain the Heating plus A/C device was diagnosed properly by heating plus cooling device professionals year after year. It paid off in the longevity of the heat pump. However, it appears my trooper of a heat pump has outlived its usefulness. Recently, I’ve been interviewing Heating plus A/C places of business plus they all tell me to make the transfer now because the coming demand could force weeks of waiting. I’ve actually been considering moving away from the heat pump completely. My beach household is fairly compact with an open floor plan. I’m considering investing in a multi split Heating plus A/C device. This way I don’t have to fret about shoring up all the ducts in the household. And, with three air handlers I’ll be able to have more individualized comfort settings. The multi split HVAC system is absolutely more costly. Yet, the utility savings I will enjoy will more than make up for the difference in cost. The more the rate of energy prices soar the more I’m willing to invest in a Heating plus A/C device that will help me fight that cost.
