Puron® Environmentally Sound Refrigerant
Puron is the refrigerant of the future, and Comfort Air 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 systems.
In 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
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.

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
- 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
- Reliability - Carrier's air conditioners and heat pumps
with Puron refrigerant have become the most reliable products in our
- Quiet Operation - Many of the air conditioners and heat
pumps with Puron refrigerant also offer Carrier's Silencer System
for quieter operation.
