134-A vs R-22
Can anyone tell me when the switch was make and specifically on a a unit that I have was was manufactured in 1998, It is a RUUD 3.5 Ton 10 Sear Model Number UAKA-042JAZ.
Again looking to find out if this unit is 134 a or R-22.
It is also for sale for $
R-22 dude.....never used 134a for comfort cooling
134a is used for comfort cooling...in autos and in centrifugal chillers. Just not in residential.
OP, any reason why anyone would want to buy a 13 year old a/c condenser for what you're asking for? Do you and any potential customer you have a favor and take that old thing to your local metal recycling yard. Get some lunch money and move on.
Tear out the coil and take it to the scrap yard. No one will pay that for an old unit.

Thats what I meant....not in typical residential applications
This is a new one. Trying to sell your old condenser while asking a question. This should go in a "best of" section on this site if there was one. Quite ironic I saw this post. We did a changeout last year on a system and took the old condenser to our yard to scrap. Never got around to it and one of our customers lost a compressor and he ended up with this equipment. Got a call yesterday for no cooling on this house. Got out there this morning and the compressor is locked up on the unit we sold this guy. He paid $ for the POS last summer to save a few $$$ and now he's gonna be buying a new on tomorrow.
WAIT,wait just a darn minute!
I've heard tell that in this day and agew some folks live in Cadillacs and old people like me used to live in VW buses Soooooooo
Don't be so quick with the no 134a for comfort cooling!!!
