All newly produced American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning systems use R410a, a type of refrigerant that is better for the environment, instead of R-22. The switch is in accordance with guidance from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
R-22 is a chemical cooling compound found in older HVAC systems, that is currently being phased out of production and use due to its harmful effects on the planet.
Refrigerant is the lifeblood of an air conditioner or heat pump, responsible for absorbing, carrying, and releasing heat to achieve and maintain your desired temperature.
