Air Conditioning Refrigerant refills and cost in Toronto Ontario
The cost of an air conditioning refrigerant may vary based on few factors.
If your air conditioner is not producing enough cold air or your upper floors are not cooling properly, there is a chance that you need an air conditioner refrigerant refill. The cost of an air conditioning refrigerant may vary based on few factors including the type of the refrigerant your AC is using and the amount that is needed to bring the level of refrigerant to normal.
Type of Refrigerant: Cost of refilling will greatly depend on what type of refrigerant your current A/C unit may need. Most units older units use R-22 gas and most of new high efficiency air conditioners (ACs) are using new gas called R410A. R-22 is the older model of the two and in process to be phased out by the EPA. The price for R-22 has increased significantly over the past few years due to its scarcity in the market and is projected to increase even more. If you have an older air conditioner (AC) which is still using R-22 gas this may be the time to upgrade to a new high efficiency air conditioner if you live in Toronto or surrounding area of Ontario. Buying or renting new air conditioner will help you avoid costly R-22 refrigerant refills. All new high efficiency air conditioners are now using R410 refrigerant which is also considered to be more environmentally friendly.
