Puron is the refrigerant of the
future, and Carrier is prepared to help homeowners like you
enjoy improved comfort right now with a full line of
products utilizing this performance-enhancing refrigerant.
You may not realize it, but your existing indoor weather
system is an endangered species. That's the result of the
1990 Clean Air Act and the internationally binding Montreal
Protocol. These documents call for an international phase
out on future manufacturing of the refrigerant R-22, which
is currently used in most air conditioning and heat pump
response to this phase out, Carrier has been hard at work
assisting in the development of a replacement refrigerant.
Extensive testing and a full two years of use in the market
place have helped us determine that Puron is superior in
performance and energy efficiency in addition to being
environmentally sound. These outstanding results have made
Puron refrigerant the universally accepted, long-term
refrigerant for the heating and cooling industry.
Carrier is the first manufacturer to
develop indoor weather products using Puron, the
chlorine-free replacement refrigerant for R-22. As
companies worldwide race to switch over to chlorine-free
refrigerants, Carrier offers the experience of having
introduced the first air conditioners with the alternative
refrigerant back in 1996. Now, Carrier is expanding its line
to offer a wide range of environmentally sound products.
Carrier's superior technology enables you to begin investing
in your future today with custom made indoor weather systems
that are environmentally sound.
A Carrier indoor weather system with Puron refrigerant
delivers enhanced energy efficiency, quieter operation and
outstanding reliability today while meeting the
environmental standards of the future. Puron refrigerant
has a proven record of outstanding reliability and has been approved by the EPA for use in the United States. European
and Japanese markets are also introducing products using
this high-performance, chlorine-free refrigerant.
Carrier's initial central air
conditioner using Puron refrigerant shows exceptional
reliability, having the lowest incidence of service of
Carrier's entire product line. The improved energy
efficiency of our line of indoor weather products with Puron
refrigerant will result in a reduction of your heating or
cooling costs. And, by making the switch to a system
utilizing Puron refrigerant now, you may avoid the
potentially rising costs associated with servicing or
replacing R-22 based systems.
Carrier Indoor Weather Experts have
been specially trained and are certified to install and
service Carrier products using Puron refrigerant. As you
become more aware of the inevitable switch to products with
Puron refrigerant, Carrier's Indoor Weather Experts will be
able to help you make the right choice for the future:
Carrier products with Puron refrigerant.
Is Puron® right for you?
If you are thinking about replacing your air conditioner or heat pump, keep in mind that Carrier's Puron-based products offer several homeowner benefits, including:
- Energy Efficiency - Most of our Puron air conditioners and heat pumps offer higher efficiency ratings. Keep in mind that the ratings don't change simply because they are Puron-based products - a 12 SEER rated air conditioner will deliver 12 SEER no matter what's in it. However, Puron's heat transfer properties lend themselves to higher efficiency performance.
- Future cost of service savings - Because of U.S. government restrictions on future production refrigerants with ozone-harming CFCs, the refrigerant used ion most of today's heat pumps and air conditioners will become harder to find and eventually more expensive. Switching to Puron now can help you avoid the potential rising cost of servicing most of today's air conditioners and heat pumps.
- Reliability - Carrier's air conditioners and heat pumps with Puron refrigerant have become the most reliable products in our entire line.
- Quiet Operation - Many of the air conditioners and heat pumps with Puron refrigerant also offer Carrier's Silencer System for quieter operation.
