So what is 1234YF Refrigerant?
R1234yf is a synthetic HFO refrigerant co-developed by DuPont and Honeywell as a successor to R134a for automotive air-conditioning applications. It has a global warming potential (GWP) which is ultra-low, in fact it has a rating of less than 1. This means that one kilogram of R1234yf released to atmosphere has a significantly lower greenhouse effect than a kilogram of carbon dioxide. After years of intensive research by the automotive industry to find a replacement for R134a, resulting R1234yf was selected as the new standard refrigerant for new systems. Richard Sargeson of Newland Garage said “This new ozone friendly gas is much better for our environment and many new cars are equipped with it . So don’t forget to get your cars air conditioning checked at Newland Garage”.
