If you own a home air conditioner that was manufactured before January 1, 2010, your system could very likely be using a refrigerant (Freon™) called hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC)-22 (also known as R-22). The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires that R-22 be phased out by 2020 in an effort to protect the Earth’s ozone layer.
Since we are getting closer to the phase out, and production of R-22 has dropped by 90%, the industry cost of R-22 has gone up dramatically. We do still have R-22 in supply to service older air conditioning units if needed, but the price to recharge those units is going to keep rising.
Replacing your air conditioner with a new, more efficient model will save you money on your cooling bills year after year. Our Lennox air conditioners are ozone-friendly and energy efficient, with excellent SEER ratings from 13 through 25 SEER.

Kevin was a comfort consultant for All Comfort Services for eight years and retired in 2023. He is happy he found a company that fit his customer service philosophy. “I wanted to work for a company that puts the customer first, and All Comfort Services does that,” says Kevin. He says that often homeowners don’t think of the importance of buying home equipment as a long-term investment as corporations do. And he says that home equipment has changed in the 10-15 years, and he wants to help educate customers about the benefits of choosing the newest high-efficient and high-performance solutions to meet their home comfort needs.
Kevin has degrees in Marketing and Management. His career spans over 25 years in air handling and fluid dynamics for commercial, municipal, and industrial applications. While supporting engineers with sales and equipment, he also learned how to help solve problems such as salvage and reuse of wastewater. He learned how to be innovative and provide solutions that often involved chemistry, physics, and biology. His past work experience helps him every day to observe and listen. He says the best reward for his work is a satisfied customer.
