The Environmental Protection Agency has completed the years long process of phasing out the production of R-22 refrigerant, also known as “freon”. You may have seen or heard on local and national news that it will be illegal to manufacture R-22 after January 1st, 2020. Consequently, the cost of repairing air conditioning systems which require R-22 refrigerant will rise exponentially. Newer air conditioning systems use a more environmentally friendly refrigerant known as R-410A. Unfortunately, the two refrigerants are not compatible and cannot be mixed or used without expensive modifications to systems designed for R-22.
We are honored and humbled to have received the 2019 Business of the Year Award. This is fully due to our employees and our customers.
We are honored to make a difference in our community, so we are inviting you to join in! For the month of April, Tri County Air will donate a portion of the proceeds from every new air conditioning and heating system purchased to your choice of one of the below local non-profit organizations. These are organizations that have a track record of good stewardship and lasting community impact.
One of the most common questions we receive at Tri County Air is:
"When is the best time to buy a new air conditioning and heating system?"
During the month of August, The Tri County Community Foundation was asked by one of our very own employees to help out with a children’s pajama party.
"Loving others with the comfort of Christ" is what we do at the Tri County Community Foundation, known in the communtiy as Serve Florida, and that is exactly what we did at the Day 4 Hope.
This year, Tri County Air’s instructor, Mark Jennings, taught the HVAC students at Charlotte Technical College (CTC). This ongoing partnership between Tri County Air and CTC has given us a unique opportunity to join together with P.A.L.M. (Professionals Actively Leading and Mentoring). Through the partnership with P.A.L.M., Tri County Air of Venice together with Executive Air of Miami were able to lead students from Charlotte Technical College in how to install an AC unit into a new home. The goal that P.A.L.M. has set in place is to partner with local companies that are willing to donate resources and labor to build an entire house. The homes they work together to construct are located in Miami and worth $200,000. This process gives real life experience to students so they can see what it takes to build an entire home. P.A.L.M. then sells the home with the proceeds of the sell being donated to charities, such as Future Builders of America.
