Here is what folks don’t realize: that will be THE WORST time to get an air conditioner replacement!
Why? Because everyone else with a busted R22 air conditioner will probably be in the same situation, you are. There’ll be massive growth in the need for new air conditioners at that moment, which will likely mean long wait times for installations. Since the new tax legislation was- passed, businesses can quickly expense heating, air conditioning, and ventilation equipment. You can now write off the total COST of all HVAC Systems installed the year you purchase them. That’s a significant change from the old tax rules. Before the law, you had to depreciate HVAC parts’ prices over 39 years.
What happens if your company depends on air conditioning and has to wait for weeks or more without AC? That is why, if your aging air conditioner utilizes R22 (and especially if you’re having problems with it), your air conditioner repair or substitute decision is a no-brainer. Replacement is the way to go.
Three new developments that could change your air conditioner repair or replace choice
For businesses and people with old R22 air conditioners, recent developments might create your air conditioner repair or replacement choice more accessible. Then odds are it utilizes R22 refrigerant (also known as Freon). Here is the bad news: R22 has been phased out and may no longer be produced or imported in the U.S. Costs for almost any remaining R22 on the marketplace are skyrocketing since supply is dwindling. And that impacts the purchase price of fixing your old device.
You are going to need to replace your previous R22 air conditioner soon anyway.
When R22 is no more accessible, you may not be able to fix it. The refrigerant needed for various types of repairs may not be available. There might be sellers selling retrieved R22 from older systems, but the price will probably be prohibitive.
First things first:
Be skeptical of any service supplier that insists you have to rush into a decision to purchase a new air compressor. Be warier if they have not provided an adequate explanation of what is wrong- or they can not answer your ac repair questions.
