Conditioning the air responsibly
One of the issues that our California Air Resources Board is finally going to address is “do it yourself” air conditioning refrigerants. They plan on restricting the sale of these. We are not sure how they are planning to do this, unless it will be similar to the spray paint cans that are locked up at your local hardware store. Maybe they will restrict the sale in that manner, or perhaps ban their sale entirely in the state. We’ll see what happens next.
It has been known for probably 20 years or so, that the refrigerants cause environmental damage when a system is leaking…not sure why this one took so long.
Always take care of your air conditioning unit at a professional repair shop, and help keep our air clean!
