Howdy gents,,
not sure if this is in the right forum, but I had to go to a different supply house that I usually go to. They asked for my EPA which I provided and small talk started between me and the gentleman behind the counter.

He said that an EPA certification is not required for r-134 or r-410. Is this true? I understand that 134 can be purchased at walmart and auto supply stores without and epa,,, but 410????

I don't doubt him, I am just seeking someone else to say that yes,, he is right.

410a requires it's own certification.

They say you have to have a 410A cert to use the "freon". You don't have to have a certification to buy wut the catch is they will not sell to you with out it. The only place to but it is at a HVAC supply. HENCE "ROC CONTRACTOR" Hope this helps

Not by law it doesn't.

This is true, but OEM highly reccomends you get it because of handling higher pressures.

Some manufacturers require you to take their own 410a course to purchase or install their equipment. This is not law, it is a manufacturer requirement.

Frankly, it's not a bad idea because there's still gobs of people in the business that don't know how to work with 410, or any other HFC for that matter.

York is one of those mfgs. I got certified thru them. I guess that's wher I got the word "require" from.
