Do you have the new style air conditioning gas – 1234YF in your vehicle? You may not even be aware that you do but when your air-con service is due you will find that not all garages will carry the new style machine to regas the 1234YF air-con gas.
The good news it that at Russell Automotive Centre we do have the new style machine so we are well equipped to keep your vehicle cool all summer long.
All vehicles manufactured from 2017 will need the new style air-con gas and some vehicles prior to that date also require it.
If you are wondering why the need for a new style then you’ll be interested to read that the main difference between the old style gas (R134) and the new 1234YF gas is down to its environmental credentials. The old R134 gas has a significantly higher global warming potential than the new gas. If the gas leaks from a car or van’s air conditioning system then it has a higher impact on the environment. So you will be happy to know your carbon footprint is reducing as far as your vehicle is concerned!
There is an increase in price for the new style air-conditioning gas as currently there are only a few suppliers providing the 1234YF gas. The cost will come down eventually as demand rises.
Please call us to check on our current prices for the new style air-conditioning gas on 0208 2000 995. We are happy to keep you cool and breathing in conditioned air all year long. As a general guide your air-con will need a service every two years.
