The Difference Between Puron and Freon Explained

Monday, August 2nd, 2021

An air conditioning system uses refrigerant to cool the air. This refrigerant is a blend of chemicals that can easily change between liquid and gaseous states by evaporating and condensing. By evaporating refrigerant in the indoor coil and condensing it in the outdoor coil, an air conditioner moves heat from inside the house to the outside.

Over the history of electro-mechanical air conditioning systems, there have been many different refrigerants. Very early air conditioners used ammonia, sulfur dioxide, methyl chloride, or propane—all of which are either toxic, combustible, or both. This limited the use of air conditioning systems to commercial and industrial buildings. Eventually, ACs were designed to use safer refrigerants, and this is where we come to Freon and Puron. People often have questions about what these names mean and if it has an effect on their air conditioning system. We are here with the answers.

When it comes to major AC system repair in Covington, GA, a dead compressor is one of the biggest.

The compressor uses a powerful motor to run, and if the motor burns out, the compressor will fail. 

You may have heard the conventional wisdom that when a compressor dies, it means the end of the line for the entire AC. Replacing a compressor is expensive, which makes the prospect of replacing the entire system more attractive. 

But is it always true that a failed compressor means you have to replace your AC? Follow us below and we’ll answer that.

An air conditioning system comes with a set of ratings to describe its maximum energy efficiency performance: how effectively it takes its electrical power and converts it into cooling output.
