Central Air Conditioning units are complex systems. Most older units contain R-22, an ozone depleting refrigerant. US law (EPA) requires certification to purchase this type of refrigerant or repair systems containing this type of refrigerant.

Special gauges, tools, and training are required to ensure an air conditioning unit is performing at its maximum efficiency.

Some routine maintenance items that a homeowner may want to perform themselves are checking that the air filter, blower wheel, evaporator coil, and condensor coils are clean and clear of debris.
