Question about Heating & Cooling
You can release the freon or capture it with a pump and container. Often companies will come get the freon for you, for free, because they get to then reuse it.
But the equipment is expensive, and I don't know anyone who rents it out.
But I do not really recommend moving central AC. With the hoses, releasing the freon, installation of the condenser and evaporator, the controls and wiring, etc., it is hardly worth it.
A new central AC unit will cost about the same as the labor to remove one. Once opened, you need a vacuum pump to remove the air and moisture that will enter. Not to mention new freon.
Here is a guy selling the outside condenser for $800 and inside evaporator for $400.
This guy is selling kits as low as $550.
