If you didn't store it properly and just released the gas then get someone to flare the pipes again and gas it up. You can do the basic install with wiring and mounting which would save on the money.

In the future, you can turn the compressor on by leaving it on cold and shut the valve and have all the gas collect back in the outside unit. It's not going to evacuate all the lines completely but most of it will be in the compressor and not the pipes. Then when you install it you hook the pipes up and crack one side open until all the air is evacuated. No vacuum needed, but will have some loss of gas. Probably a few youtubes out there on how to do it.

In the US, that's something like a $37,500 fine (if I recall correctly) and there is a bounty reward if you rat your neighbors out.

The UK government department responsible for administering the F-gas regulations, DEFRA (Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs) is implementing a multi tier fine system based on the severity of the break in regulation.

Four groups of penalty ranging in scale from £1,000 to £200,000 based on the seriousness of the infringement.

The maximum fine of £200,000 applied to offences such as the intentional release of F-gases to atmosphere, breaches of the quota limits for placing HFCs on the market, and failure to comply with an enforcement notice.

Fines of up to £100,000 for offences where the impacts are likely to be less severe, but emissions of F-gases are still likely. This would include contravening F-gas requirements and procedures for minimising emissions or leakage of F-gases and recovering F-gases from equipment. It would also be levied on non-F-gas certified people handling F-gases or on those not fulfilling the requirements to register for and verify quota usage.

A maximum fine of £50,000 applied to breaches including failing to correctly label F-gases or products containing them; failing to comply with the requirements for declarations of conformity for importing products containing F-gases; and failing to keep records of F-gases used in equipment or F-gas sales.

Minor breaches such as not reporting within the prescribed deadline on F-gas production, import, export, destruction and feedstock usage carry a maximum fine of £10,000.

@Korishan and Mike. Blush Sorry

So it would be better to let this airco go, to avoid trouble?
or will the system be good for yeaaaaars to come?
I suspect that they will keep addresses of people who bought/refill them?
And what if I want to get rid of it?(I suspect they will vacuum it, against a cheap price?)
Or its a leaker?
