At Petri Plumbing & Heating, we’re Brooklyn air conditioning experts, and we’re glad to offer HVAC services to help keep our neighbors comfortable.
As part of that, we keep up on HVAC trends, like the Freon ban that recently went into effect, to keep our customers aware of issues that can affect them. Now that it has been phased-out, we want to give you all the information you need to switch to better refrigerants.
Unfortunately, the HVAC systems that use Freon can’t operate using other refrigerants as-is. Some companies may offer to convert your existing system, but this can require extensive re-engineering to accommodate the higher pressures that modern refrigerants need. Systems that have been converted are also likely to experience more maintenance issues going forward. These units are often more than 10 years old and nearing the end of their useful lives, which means homeowners are better off replacing.
With all that out of the way, there are some great solutions that can help Brooklyn homeowners replace their HVAC systems without spending a fortune or wasting time on a long-term renovation. At Petri Plumbing, we’re fans of ductless mini-split systems, which can be installed in a day or two even in situations where it’s impossible to run ductwork. Modern systems allow one outside unit to feed nearly every room in your home, and some even allow for heating and cooling zones, so everyone can find their comfortable temperature. Learn more about ductless mini-spit systems and how beneficial they can be in a Brooklyn home!
