Today any central air conditioner or heat pump manufactured in North America must contain R-410A refrigerant if the unit is charged during the manufacturing process. The refrigerant, R-410A, was developed in response to an agreement between numerous countries (known as the Montreal Protocol) that stated that those countries from around the world would move toward discontinuing the use of hydrochlorofluorocarbon-based (HCFC) refrigerants. HCFCs are widely accepted to be ozone-depleting chemical compounds. R-410A refrigerant a non-HCFC-based refrigerant is chlorine free.
The entire Goodman brand of central air conditioners and heat pumps utilize R-410A refrigerant. In addition, several Goodman brand air conditioners and heat pumps feature a SmartCoil® 5mm copper tube condensing coil. Compared to the standard 3/8’s inch copper tubing, the SmartCoil allows for fewer pounds of refrigerant to be used in each unit. Because of the smaller tubing size, Goodman SmartCoil units are smaller in size compared to 3/8" tubing units.
