    • Tom A says:

      Your a/c unit should have a tag on it that tells you which freon is in it.

      don.t mix refrigerants

    • dobbiethehouseelf says:

      I really don’t think so.

    • norm says:

      You can’t mix refrigerants. Look on the plate to see what kind of charge your unit has.

    • Corky R says:

      There should be a tag on the inside of the cabinet, or possibly on the face of the unit, under the filter cover, that will tell you what type of freon/coolant was used in it. I would stay with the same type.

    • ja man says:

      open it up and look at it some will take the R-134 you just need to check it out first I would imagine so since it is what has become widely used

    • j_nick57 says:

      Probably not.

      Your home air conditioner is almost certainly designed for R-22 which has a very different boiling curve than R-134.

    • Dr. Bugly says:

      No, No and No. Most home A/C units use R-22. They have different boiling temps. You cannot mix them.

    • Eric says:

      NO! Most central units I know use R-22.

    • electricpole says:

      Most Central Air units used R-22. Many small window units use R-134a. Check the data tag for type and amount of charge. If it is older than about 14 yrs, it may have R-12, which is obsolete. none are interchangeable, and each unit ws designed with the characteristices of the particular refrigerant use in mind.

    • paulofhouston says:

      If central no, if window unit check tag, probably not.Do not mix!!! and do not try to substitute as each unit is designed for a particular type of gas.Are you sure you don’t need a lisense.where you live?

    • union_american says:

      I agree with others here. No, Use R-22.
