    I do auto ac and plan on getting my home ac certificate online soon. My circa 1980, Payne heat pump needs to be topped off and I plan on doing that myself. I just have a few questions.

    #1. Can I use my R12 auto gauges? Should I clean out the hoses first?

    #2. Is there a trick to finding the high and low side? Are they clearly marked? On a car I have no problem.

    #3. How does topping off a home ac differ from that of a car? Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.

    This unit hasn't been serviced in about 9 years. The leak is very slight.

    Anybody have any tips on topping off a Payne heat pump?

    Where are you getting r22 without an epa 608 certification?
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.
