2.5ton is definitely not powerful enough for 3200sqft house.

Anyway, don't get R22 A/C.
Torune,
Come to think of it, it was 3 ton in the 3200 sft house. Still underpowered though.
Correct me if I am wrong but I am reading that R22 will still be produced until 2020. After that, recycled R22 will still be available. The only time you need to recharge/replace the refrigerant is when a problem arises.

I'll try to get him to sweeten the deal on the R410 unit.

January 1, 2010:
The Montreal Protocol requires the U.S. to reduce its consumption of HCFCs by 75% below the U.S. baseline. Allowance holders may only produce or import HCFC-22 to service existing equipment. Virgin R-22 may not be used in new equipment. As a result, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system manufacturers may not produce new air conditioners and heat pumps containing R-22.
January 1, 2015:
The Montreal Protocol requires the U.S. to reduce its consumption of HCFCs by 90% below the U.S. baseline.
January 1, 2020:
The Montreal Protocol requires the U.S. to reduce its consumption of HCFCs by 99.5% below the U.S. baseline. Refrigerant that has been recovered and recycled/reclaimed will be allowed beyond 2020 to service existing systems, but chemical manufacturers will no longer be able to produce R-22 to service existing air conditioners and heat pumps.
For more information about this phaseout, see fact sheets about the HCFC Phaseout Schedule and Frequently Asked Questions on the HCFC Phaseout.

What Does the HCFC-22 Phaseout Mean for Consumers?
Availability of R-22

The Clean Air Act does not allow any refrigerant to be vented into the atmosphere during installation, service, or retirement of equipment. Therefore, R-22 must be recovered and recycled (for reuse in the same system), reclaimed (reprocessed to the same purity standard as new R-22), or destroyed. After 2020, the servicing of R-22-based systems will rely solely on recycled or reclaimed refrigerants. It is expected that reclamation and recycling will ensure that existing supplies of R-22 will last longer and be available to service a greater number of systems. As noted above, chemical manufacturers will no longer be able to produce, and companies will no longer be able to import, R-22 for use in new A/C equipment after 2010, but they can continue production and import of R-22 until 2020 for use in servicing existing equipment. Given this schedule, which was established in 1993, the transition away from R-22 to the use of ozone-friendly refrigerants should be smooth. For the next 10 years or more, R-22 should continue to be available for all systems that require R-22 for servicing.

I just started this because there seemed to be about 2-3 possible deals in that thread which was kind of confusing.


I've decided to go with Axis Heating.

I don't think it would be a problem. My initial e-mail with them, I said that there would be homebuyers closing any time from now until August.

Just make sure to pay before June 1, or you'll pay HST.

Thanks. I just emailed them to see if they would be okay with it.

If you are only having it installed after July 1st then you will probably have to pay HST (at least on the installation). Even if you pay for it before July 1st.
