HFO 1234yf or HFC R-123a Based Air Conditioning System ?
Most vehicles up to 2015 will have the HFC-123a gas based system. However newer type approved vehicles (and all vehicles manufactured from 1st January 2017) will have a HFO 1234yf gas based Air Conditioning system. This is a different and more Ozone friendly gas than previously used and requires different equipment to service and regas the vehicles system. At Advanced Motorcare we have invested in the necessary equipment to handle both gas types correctly.
However due to the significantly increased gas cost, HFO 1234yf based systems will incur an additional regassing charge dependent on the quantity of gas required to recharge the system. The charge will be based on the quantity of gas used as reported by our equipment at the time of represurising your system.
For more information on the HFO 1234fy changes please see our new article here.
