R1234yf Air Conditioning Systems
Its use commenced in 2011 and rolled out across all new cars. From the 1st January 2017, EU regulations have required vehicle manufacturers to change the type of refrigerant gas used in car air conditioning systems. The old R134a gas has been banned in new vehicles and a new gas – R1234yf (full name 2,3,3,3-Tetrafluoropropene, or HFO-1234yf) – replaces it. Claimed to be more environmentally friendly, it is also a lot more expensive. R1234yf is as efficient as R134a, with the same cooling capacity. R1234yf uses less fuel, producing 20-30% less CO2 emissions and therefore a significant decrease in carbon footprint when compared to R134a.
R1234yf is not a retrofit option for vehicles using R134a. R1234yf has an ASHRAE class A2L which means it’s mildly flammable. It has been extensively tested by third parties and car manufacturers to verify it is safe to use.
Fusty smell when your A/C is on? A build up of bacteria on the A/C evaporator inside the car causes an unpleasant smell as mould and fungi grows which can lead to sinus infections and asthma complications. Our disinfectant cleaners can kill the bacteria and freshen the system, making it clean and odour free. So why not have a spring clean with our Air Atom
Based in central Rotherham, we cover all surrounding areas including Sheffield, Worksop, Doncaster & Chesterfield (some travel charges may apply for outlying areas). Air Conditioning Services can be done in our workshop, at your home or place of work.
