Not just anyone can go out and buy refrigerants!
The following people can buy any type of refrigerant under the EPA's sales restriction (for instance, R-11, R-12, R-123, R-22, and R-12), except for "small cans" containing less than 20 pounds of R-12:

Freon is a brand name and you can purchase it at a mechanical refrigeration dealership provided you have a license. It all depends on the type you need. 134A for cars you can find at Walmart or car part stores, R12 cannot be purchased because it is outlawed, and R22 can be found at a furnace store/mechanical dealership. There are many different types.
"Freon" can be found on e-Bay, but it is very expensive and no longer legal to buy or sell in the U.S. other than Arizona. There are environmentally friendly freon replacements available such as "Johnsen's Freeze 12" or "enviroclean"
There is a new product from Red Tek. It is called R12a. It works in all systems and is legal everywhere as far as I know. Google Red Tek or go to to find out more.
Depending on your location, R134a is available at parts stores and Walmart.
On all years, makes and models you will need to go to any automotive a/c repair shop and have them reclaim this for you.... (Do not just let it out in the atmosphere this is illegal)....... Depending of if your have R-12 freon or R134A freon you can buy the R134a freon at any auto parts store but you need to be licensed to buy R-12 freon.........
Answer To buy freon, you must obtain an ODP card. This can be done buy taking a course at your local college, provided you are an apprentice of some sort that requires the use of this product. If you get this card, remember that you are responsibe to keep a record of every ounce of freon used, if you recovered any, and what you put it in.
well you have to find the low ac pressure point which is located near the wall by the engine on the passenger side. just purchase some freon along with a pump and you can recharge your air conditioning. You cannot buy Freon! Freon is the registered trademark of DuPont's R-12 refrigerant-which is Dichlorodifluoromethane. You can buy R 134-A which is tetrafluoroethane. The term "Freon" is incorrectly used by people who think they know A/C theory.
Does not contain any Freon (R12). Freon was banned and has not been installed in any vehicle since 1995. there is freon in a 2000 durango,its in the air conditioner line,and it takes about 3 to 5 cans to fill it depending on how much is in it. you can buy everything you need to fill it up at walmart.
Never add freon to your own car. This is very dangerous and can kill you. A/C systems are very high pressure and If you buy a freon kit to add freon to your car. It will be propane which is highly flammable. Take it to a dealer to get it done. Also if you ever add it and it is leaking out then it can explode if it gets near a spark.
If you got to any auto parts store, they will have bottles of r134a that you can buy that have gauges in the handles that will tell you when you have enough in it. If you system wont cool or is out of freon you have a leak and should get it check to have a repair done, an ac system with out freon has no lub either and that will lead to compressor burn…
It should be R12 Freon unless it was retrofitted to the new freon R134A since you haven't been able to buy R12 for several years it has probably been retrofitted. If not you can buy the kit at any parts store. it's mainly just a different type of fitting. The ones in the kit just screw onto the old ones.
