Hello All...A New Year again...Hopefully yours was good....

I started this site last year to "put my feelers out"  about what owners and captains may want to learn and share about marine  a/c.

The support has been more than I ever expected...

So... My New Year resolution to you is expand the site we created...Because of your feedback I am going to begin adding to my store to allow you to order most of the common Marine A/C system items that I found you've needed,  but until the store is fully operational...As always I'm here for you to contact...

Some important information...Sadly...Due to EPA regulations there will be no more R-22 systems/units produced in 2010...

  • If you need to replace a R-22 condensing unit in an existing system...You will need to purchase a R-417A unit, evacuate your R-22 (which you would do anyway) and re-charge the system with R-417A (drop in replacement for R-22)...No need to change the air handler.
  • For new installations (split system or self contained) the systems have been re-designed to operate with environmentally friendly R-410A which operates at much higher pressures that the existing R-22 or R-417A systems...These R-410A units can Not be paired with the older air handlers.

Your local A/C guy will know what to do & have the equipment to make the change.

Your comments & feedback are always welcome & appreciated...I need things to help me write...So ask away...It does stir the thoughts...

Clean Sea Strainers to All, and to All a Good Year...Think of the A/C/Heat/ Refer Guy...He Does You...
