Your not going to find that info here.
Recharging your a/c unit needs to be done by a licensed hvac guy.

Sublime is right. Don't know exactly what Puron is, but you can't even buy most refrigerants unless you're licensed. And if you need a recharge, you obviously have a leak. Need to address that first.

The bad thing is, that they now sell Refrigerant at Sam's club. Was in there about a month ago, and they had the tanks right there with the gensets, and automotive stuff. I wonder how many clerks have not checked for a license, when someone brings them to the check out lanes.

However, no license/EPA cert is required to purchase R134A or R410A. As they are both HFC refrigerants. Some states may have their own laws against it though.

Do you really want to risk doing this yourself? Besides the hassle of doing the job, the risk of messing something up is very high.......do you want to completely ruin your A/C to save a few bucks? Call in a pro as has been suggested. They are licensed, will do it correctly, and you will have peace of mind.

I have to agree. Among other things, I worked on air conditioning equipment in the Air Force, so I know a bit about them. But I would still call a professional if my home unit needed service.

The words licensed and done correctly do not always play well together!
Some of the biggest hacks I saw in 30 plus years in the trades were licensed butchers,although I made a decent living fixing their screw ups!
