Hi all,
 
So we just had our AC replaced and I was taking it apart (Split system) it began loudly hissing. as anyone would do I shat myself and ran out the door. what I think has happened is compressed air is leaking out of one of the compressor line. Bear in mind the system is a bulky R22 unit and the AC people said it had been de-gassed. im worried because it could be potentially be leaking R22 into the amosphere. but isnt it illegal if the AC guys dont de-gass it completely? and it could also perhaps be the compessor creating a vacuum and getting ready to implode. any suggestions what it could be?
 
cheers,
hman out  B)

You have a leak and it's all gone by now.  Ventilate and call a qualified HVAC service center.  The leak can be fixed and the unit recharged - -  in most cases.

Note that it's a split system and that we don't intend to use it again. I was going to salvage the radiator(s). But I don't think I hit a pressurised line. I hit a vacuum line. I'm not sure whether to continue to dissesemble the AC

Cheers,
