Can I carry out the aircon condenser replacement myself?

Switching an aircon condenser isn’t the most challenging task, but it requires some specialist tools. The drained refrigerant needs disposing of professionally or via an authorised outlet. Without the correct experience or tools, we wouldn’t suggest it’s a job that should be carried out by a home DIY mechanic. To flush old refrigerant and recharge the system requires professional equipment and an AC pressure gauge to get the new installation running correctly.

We believe that this is a job for a professional mechanic.
