Hot, Dry Weather Should Make for Busy HVAC Season; Airgas Makes Contractor Resources Available

June 30, 2016

Accuweather is pointing to a hotter summer season in the East in 2016 and is predicting more days above 90 degrees with a hot, dry pattern in the Midwest and drought conditions in much of the West.

“Heat will come on strong in June for the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, including in New York City, Boston and Hartford, Connecticut. However, severe weather in July could turn the warm pattern on its head. I think June, July and August, you’ll see your series of heat waves,” AccuWeather Expert Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said.

Proactive contractors should anticipate customer questions such as:

  • As a home owner/business owner, what can I do to keep my system running well?
  • Do I need to fill up, top-off or recharge my system?
  • When should I replace the current R-22 refrigerant with an alternative refrigerant?
  • When should I replace my cooling system?

To help contractors address some of the questions surrounding the changes in R-22 availability and pricing, Airgas Refrigerants has prepared a free customizable mailer and leave-behind. These informative flyers can help contractors inform businesses and consumers of the change in R-22’s status and what it means for them. As always, Airgas is happy to provide free, no-obligation quotes for refrigerant sales and for buybacks of used refrigerants. Ask for your quote today.
