Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I want to move the outside unit of our split system aircon.

\015 If I disconnect the gas pipes will the refridgerant escape or will it be retained in the compressor.\015

Answers :

It will definitely escape. In fact, allowing that gas into the atmosphere is kind of illegal, as well as really expensive. An HVAC repairer has the equipment to remove the gas while keeping it trapped, do any plumbing needed to move the unit to it's new location, and then recharge the unit with the same freon (though you might need to add some to account for the additional run of pipe). Also, the electrical box will probably need to be moved.
