Gibson condenser
 
Who make Gibson and how reliable are they? Is it normal for new R22 condenser to come with nitrogen from factory?

Yes, it is normal for condensers to have Nitrogen in them to keep moisture out during storage & shipping. As for reliability for Gibson's or any manufacturer, it is up to the opinion of those that have a particular unit, and costs to maintain.

The condensor should be full of the factory charge of freon and the evaporator coil has nitrogen in it.

R-22's are now shipped with Nitrogen, no longer shipped with refrigerant charge in them.

Just called my supplier . He only has a select few R22 units left....All his units have R22 not nitrogen

What was the manufacturing date of said units? Anything after the cut off is now shipped with Nitrogen, and have to be classified as replacement units.

Hmmm. I'll have to ask my Nordyne distributor. if they are getting any units like that.

Even classified as a replacement unit. it still would fall. Under the new equipment rule. Since it is new.

That's what mine said. They get them (what's left ) filled with r22. Once these are gone no more r22. all 410

Thanks a lot for the information guys. I normally see it with factory charge R22 refrigerant according to the label on the condenser.

This time they said they only have Gibson brand left, filled with factory nitrogen because of the new regulation.

I thought they don't make R22 condenser anymore and only sell the one that have left.

I haven't make a decision to buy it yet after I had contact them on the phone.

Again thanks for the clarification.
