    NEW at this. just came aboard

    Hello fellow Airmen, I have a question I have done a lil HVAC in the past but just tested today to be EPA certified, I never did charging in the past just mostly mechanicly stuff, contactors so on so forth, with this EPA certification, can I make house calls now or do I need to have X amount of time under my belt before I can Legally do house calls?

    that 608 doesn't have the first thing to do with service work; how I wish people would stop thinking it did.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    +1. Some states have a journeyman test you have to pass.

    EPA certification makes it legal for you to hook up a manifold to equipment if you have Type II cert. and allows you to legally purchase refrigerant if the supply house is willing to sell to you depending if you have a contractors license or business license depending on your State. What you do from there may have implications of the ladder.

    I'm in Memphis and to go to someone's house to make a repair, you are supposed to have a mechanical license and a bond. Of course for every legit company there are about 10 hacks who are working for cash.
