Removing Refridgerant from Central Unit
I have a question. I am in the process of moving my Central Unit to the other side of the house. I know that they are presurized, and I have taked to a few HVAC guys about getting out here to disconnect it... I can handle tha wiring, and the disconnect and the move.....and if I didnt have to use Nitrogen in the line to solder it back to the furnace I could do that too....

My question is, is there a way to suck the refridg. back into the Unit? or is there special tools to do so? I have done Auto AC a long time ago...But dont understand this.

Or do I need a special tool and a tank like the auto's? I will have a HVAC guy hook it back up, but I need to get it moved. Any input will be great.

You need a recovery unit to suck the refrigerant out, filter it, and put it back in. Your HVAC guy should have the equipment and the know-how. The needed equipment is too costly to purchase your own unit for just one job.
