Understand the Laws Regarding Working on an Air Conditioner
- Know what it is legal for an unlicensed homeowner to do to their own equipment. There is no national or federal law regulating what a private citizen can do with their own air conditioner. There are, however, laws requiring professional certification by the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration and state and local regulations regarding licenses and professional standards for persons doing this work.
- Understand that a refrigeration supply company will not sell refrigerants or other regulated supplies to unlicensed individuals. You may find a source online, at sites like Craigslist and eBay, but the actual purchase may still be illegal.
