R1234yf is the newest refrigerant used in automotive air conditioning systems. It is a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO), which means that it is a type of greenhouse gas that has a lower global warming potential than other refrigerants, such as R134a. R1234yf was first introduced in 2011 and is now used in most new vehicles.
There are a few reasons why R1234yf is being used instead of other refrigerants. First, it has a lower global warming potential, which means that it is less harmful to the environment. Second, it is more efficient than other refrigerants, which means that it can help to improve the fuel economy of your vehicle. Third, it is less flammable than other refrigerants, which makes it safer to use.
If your vehicle uses R1234yf, it is important to have it serviced regularly by a qualified technician. This will help to ensure that your air conditioning system is working properly and that the refrigerant levels are correct.
Here are some of the benefits of using R1234yf in your car's AC system:
- Reduced environmental impact: R1234yf has a global warming potential (GWP) that is 335 times lower than R134a. This means that it is less harmful to the environment. Improved fuel economy.
- R1234yf is more efficient than R134a. This means that it can help to improve the fuel economy of your car. Increased safety.
- R1234yf is less flammable than R134a. This makes it safer to use in cars.
