Cornerstone Pros can protect customers with AC replacements

Land O Lakes, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2019 -- Need an AC repair in Land O' Lakes, FL? Don't delay. Contact Cornerstone Pros as soon as possible—but definitely before Jan. 1, 2020, for a system that uses R-22 refrigerant. After this deadline, it will be illegal in this country to produce or import R-22—making it much more expensive to service a system that uses it.

R-22 has been a standard refrigerant for AC units since 1928. But the Environmental Protection Agency ordered production and importation to come to a halt on Jan. 1, 2020, due to the detrimental effects it has on the environment and the public's health. Although it will still be legal to use R-22, it will be more expensive to repair or recharge systems with it because it can only be obtained by recycling, reusing or repurposing it.

Scientists say chlorine, a component of R-22, is damaging the ozone layer, which protects everyone from the sun's harmful rays. Plus, consistent exposure to R-22 has dangerous health effects, including skin and eye irritation, coughing, chest pains, water retention in the lungs and cancer. Over time, breathing in chlorine has been shown to affect the immune system, the heart, the blood and the respiratory system in animals and humans.

Systems with R-22 that are operating safely and efficiently may not need to be replaced. Homeowners can trust the experts at Cornerstone Pros to assess their systems and provide honest recommendations. When it makes the most sense, Cornerstone Pros offers customers the ultimate protection against this major HVAC industry change: a system replacement. Upgrading to a system that relies on safer alternatives to R-22:

- Uses 20% less refrigerant, which leads to lower energy costs
- Delivers more precise temperature control

- Adds to a home's resale value
- Improves the indoor air quality
- Pays off during tax season
- And more!
