Air conditioner freon is responsible for cooling your car – it’s a key component of your car’s A/C. Freon is a halocarbon that cycles through your A/C. Freon is a refrigerant that cycles through liquid and gas phases, and works to regulate the temperature of your car. It is important that there is not an A/C Freon leak in your car’s air conditioner system, in order to maintain cool air temperatures in the vehicle’s cabin when the air conditioner is on.
There are different types of A/C Freon. Originally, R-12 Freon was used in car air conditioners. However, it was found that when a car emits R-12 Freon, it depletes the ozone layer. The Environmental Protection Agency outlawed ozone depleting substances in 1994 and, as a result, R-134a Freon is now used instead.
If you own a car that was manufactured before 1994, you can have your A/C retrofitted for R-134a Freon. A/C retrofitting is one of Town Center Auto Complete Auto Care’s air conditioner repair service. Call or come into Town Center Auto to find out how we can keep you cool in the car, and the environment safe.
