I just bought a home, is my air conditioner under warranty?

When an air conditioner is installed in a newly constructed home, the unit will have a 10-year warranty. However, this warranty doesn't transfer to a new owner if the home is purchased within the first 5 years of its construction. A 5-year warranty will apply to the unit on a home between 5 to 10 years old. For example, if you purchase a home that was built 2 years ago, you don't have 8 years left on your warranty but 5 years instead.

What is Pruon/Freon?

Both of these are refrigerants used in air conditioning units, refrigerators, etc. Freon, also referred to as R22 was widely used for a number of years until its ozone-depleting properties were identified and its production ceased in 2010. If you have a unit that still uses Freon, it needs to be replaced for both environmental reasons as well as the fact that your unit is likely nearing the end of its usable life. Puron, also called 410A is the more eco-friendly answer to Freon that is now present in almost all cooling products.

Do you have any products that you swear by?
