What Is Auto A/C Refrigerant?

When it comes to being comfortable on both long and short drives, air conditioning is a must-have. At Kaufman’s Auto Repair, we understand how annoying it would be to drive around in a car without working A/C. Fortunately, you can depend on our professional repair experts and our state-of-the-art equipment to accomplish any kind of A/C repair you need! 


If you’ve noticed that your car’s air conditioning is no longer performing how it used to, then it is probably a good idea to stop by Kaufman’s Auto Repair for a thorough inspection. The good news is that most A/C problems are fairly easy and affordable to repair. And the maintenance is even simpler.


The entire A/C system revolves around one thing: refrigerant. Your vehicle’s air conditioner works by creating a complex form of heat transfer with the help of a chemical refrigerant. When the level of refrigerant drop, typically from leaks, the A/C unit won’t be able to make cold air. If this happens, you’ll need a knowledgeable technician to fix the leak and top your vehicle off with refrigerant. This process is also called an A/C recharge.


Before our mechanics can fill your car with the chemical, you need to find the type of refrigerant that your auto air conditioning system uses. On older vehicles, refrigerants R12 and 134a were used. However, 1234yf is the newest form of refrigerant that is more eco-friendly than the previous versions. R-1234yf is becoming the new standard for vehicles today.


All in all, it is much safer to leave A/C services and repairs to the professionals. At our auto repair shop, we provide quick, easy, and effective 1234yf refrigerant recharge service. If your vehicle is no longer blowing cold air, please do not hesitate to bring your car to Kaufman’s Auto Repair today.
