The EPA doesn't issue a refrigerant handling license. They have a technician certification requirement as you know. It is not a license though.

I've had my card since 94. Its a simple multiple choice test. I got universal. And I don't know how to work on low pressure chillers. But I passed that portion too.

If you really read the EPA regs, you might find the loop hole.

Morning Houton, and thank you.

No Professional on this forum should feel compelled to give out more advise/instructions then they feel safe doing so. And each must determine for themselves what level of advise they are comfortable giving out.

Good morning. I'm confident that most of the 1400 viewers of this post do not own a recovery unit. Someone should note that it is illegal to vent refrigerant for a very good reason. We only have one world. It is important not to destroy it.

I agree. My lungs aren't what they use to be, so clean air is important.

I don't think anyone advocates just blowing off a charge anymore.

And some smart guy from Houston just pointed out about venting being illegal.

A long long time ago. I use to rent a recovery machine from the local UR branch, when I needed one.

In Mo. we have to be EPA certified to put our gauges on and handle any freon and 410a certified to work on them. If he is trying to charge by sight glass that is bad to do on any system let alone 410a, he needs to put some gauges on and temp. reading on the suction line and liquid line and then we can see were this system is at.
