Freon in copper tubing open to the environment can turn into phosgene gas after coming in contact with extreme heat, such as while brazing or in a fire situation. Phosgene is a substance that was used as a chemical weapon in World War I. Low exposure can cause irritation, but high levels cause fluid to collect in the lungs, possibly resulting in death.

Because of the harmful effects to the ozone, it is illegal to release Freon gas into the atmosphere. Do you have Freon-containing appliances at the end of their useful life in your community? You will need to have a certified technician remove the Freon from appliances in your community before the appliances can be recycled/disposed of (which includes crushing and disposing of the appliances in your community, or backhauling them out). If the appliances are being backhauled to a recycling/disposal company, the “certification of removal” (a piece of paper) must be sent to the company along with the appliances to prove that the Freon was removed properly.
