Why Choose R1234YF (aka 1234YF or Y1234) Refrigerant?

R1234YF, also known as 1234YF or Y1234, is the latest refrigerant used in modern automotive air conditioning systems. It has been adopted as a replacement for the older R134a refrigerant due to its numerous environmental and performance benefits:

  • Environmental Impact: R1234YF has a significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) compared to R134a. It has a GWP of 4, compared to R134a’s GWP of 1,430, making it a much more environmentally friendly option.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Many countries have regulations in place that require the use of low-GWP refrigerants in new vehicles. R1234YF complies with these regulations, ensuring that your vehicle meets current environmental standards.
  • Improved Efficiency: Vehicles using R1234YF refrigerant often experience improved cooling efficiency and performance. This refrigerant allows for better heat exchange and cooling capacity, ensuring your AC system operates at peak efficiency.
  • Future-Proofing: As automotive technology continues to evolve, using R1234YF refrigerant ensures that your vehicle’s AC system remains compatible with future standards and innovations. This forward-thinking approach helps maintain the value and performance of your vehicle over time.
