R22 units won’t have as good of warranty as the 410a <a href="http://bit.ly/1er5K9w">Heating and air in Mcdonough Ga</a>

I agree that spending more now will save in the future. Also, it is important to consider a service contract from a HVAC professional. That preventive service can add years on the life expectancy of any HVAC system. There is a lot of good info here. I will visit often.

R22 coil needs replacing on an 8 yr old system. HVAC co. said there is a coil that is compatible with R22 and 410A and can remedy the situation should the condenser ever need replacing the coil will not have to be changed. This contradicts what I read that once you have released gas into the evaporator coil it becomes dedicated to that type of gas and cannot be used later with a different type of gas. Is so, then I’m being mislead? Cost $3,100. Any thoughts?

I would always recommend converting to 410a condenser and coil. Standard R22 refrigerant will no longer be manufactured by 2020. Going with a florater coil that runs both ways might work now but there is no telling what the effects will be down the road due to mixed refrigerants or non-condensibles left in the coil bends etc after conversion. $3,000 is lot to take a risk on.

R – 22 refrigerant is no longer used by AC manufacturing companies as it damages the ozone layer. If you have AC with R -22 Refrigerant, you should replace it with the new one.
