Mobile Air Conditioning service is always evolving. One of the latest advances is the use of R-1234yf refrigerant to cool a vehicles cabin. Prior to the introduction of R-1234yf, mechanics were servicing vehicles equipped with R-12 or R-134a. But with the high ozone depletion potential (ODP) nature of R-12 and the high global warming potential (GWP) of R-134a came an industry demand for something more environmentally sustainable.
With tens of millions of vehicles equipped with R-123yf falling out of warranty each year, it is imperative for technicians to have the tools required to service these vehicles.
