    R 410a Equipment

    How many of you guys have already switched to all 410a equipment , in the past couple of months that seems to be all that customers are asking for.

    Almost all 410a equipment now except for commercial, and we are starting to do more 410a there than 22.
    Poor planning on your part doesn’t necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

    We sold 5 r-22 units this year in our res/replacement dept,out of 2500 or so systems
    It's NOT the BRAND,it's the company that installs it!!!!!

    it's slowly getting up to 410a's price, soon 410a may be cheaper.

    Buying a skid of R-22 maybe a good investment before then.

    So far all of my equipment is 22 but it came down the pipeline from corporate that any more replacements will have to be 410a. I just today took the 410a certification online. It doesn't seem so bad on paper but time will tell.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    We are doing about 50/50 on changeouts and 80% 410 on new installs.

    As long as the R-22 is still available it is extremely difficult to make a 100% change-over. In addition, most commercial and 3-phase equipment has not maintained pace with the residential lines and is not readily available with new 410a refrigerant.

    I do believe it is forward-thinking to make as much as a transition as possible to the 410a products as the eventual total transition is inevitable. The general public is getting better educated about the changes in equipment, as well as the parameters surrounding the change in refrigerant.

    Our emphasis is on 410a since it is the 'future, and the future is now,' but we are also realistic enough to know there are still current applications for R-22.

    all the best, Irish

    Lennox and Aaon both have commercial size 410a units. Any rooftop unit installed on a Wal-Mart in the last 4 years has been 410a. Rumor has it that Wal-Mart is looking into using it on their large refrigeration systems. Of course I have also heard they are looking into CO2 also.

    All equipment sold is 410a unless the system is not available yet (XL19i and commercial) or the customer requests otherwise.
