Hi Kennith, Please, don't release Freon into the atmosphere. If
any of the other A/C units that you have are still sealed, take them
to a A/C repair shop where they can reclaim the Freon. I don't know,
but with the price of Freon being high, they may even pay you.
There is a fair chance that that is so. The type of refrigerant
(R-12) used in small compressors (window AC, refrigerator/freezer,
etc.) is the one that is considered the most troublesome, so it is
now the most expensive and restricted. Nearly all of it on the
market, now is recycled and/or reclaimed. There is little or no new
R-12 being made in the US.
