R-1234yf A/C Repair
At Japanese Automotive Professional Service in Alpharetta and Kennesaw, GA, we are your source for R-1234yf air conditioning services in the area. While checking your vehicle’s maintenance schedule, you may have noticed that your vehicle requires R-1234yf refrigerant. Since this type of refrigerant is still relatively new to most, you may not be sure what exactly this means for you and your vehicle.
Refrigerant is the lifeline of your car’s air conditioning system. With low or no refrigerant, heat will not be able to move out from the system and the air flowing into the cabin will not be cool. The old standard for refrigerant was the R134a, but this type is slowly being phased out due to its negative effects on the environment. Believe it or not, R134a is almost 1400 times more impactful on the environment than the newer R-1234yf.
The new R-1234yf refrigerant is rising in popularity because it has a much lower effect on global warming. It is now being used in more than half of all newly manufactured vehicles and should be in all new vehicles within the next couple of years. Servicing vehicles using this new refrigerant is more complex than the standard air conditioning system, and it does require specialized training and equipment in order to service.
At Japanese Automotive Professional Service, we are equipped with the new R-1234yf machine that allows us to properly service vehicles with this new system. Our ASE certified technicians are also certified and trained to perform this new air conditioning recharge service properly. Additionally, we do still perform air conditioning services on vehicles using the R134a refrigerant. We work on all makes and models of vehicles, so regardless of what you drive, we can assist with your car A/C service needs!
Having a working air conditioning system is important when it comes to the comfort of your vehicle. Getting into your car on a hot day to find no relief can make your drive unbearable, so as soon as you notice an issue with your vehicle’s air conditioning system, we invite you into our Alpharetta or Kennesaw shop for an inspection and service.
If the air is blowing warm, you more than likely need an air conditioning recharge. However, other issues, such as no air coming out of the vents, may require a part replacement or repair. You can trust that our professionals will perform testing and a thorough inspection to identify the correct problem to get you back on the road driving comfortably again!
