Refrigerants for Residential Air Conditioning

An Efficient Refrigerant Choice for Home AC Systems

Today’s residential air conditioning (AC) systems are designed use less electricity while maintaining comparable cooling capacity to older systems. The technology that facilitates their efficiency includes:

  • Smart thermostats
  • Zone systems with separate climate controls
  • Variable-speed AC systems that adjust a home's airflow
