Be aware of different refrigerants

A/C tips March 1, 2011

Be aware of replacement refrigerants.  R415b is being sold as a r12 and sometime's a r134a replacement.  This refrigerant is commonly given a  ASHRAE certification. This r415b is a blend and is also highly flammable.  Although it may work in a vehicles a/c system it will invalidate warranties on OEM products and has NOT been accepted by any of the major vehicle manufacturers outside of China.  We at Triangle Auto Service only use R12 or R134a which do not invalidate manufacturers warranties, and ARE accepted by major car manufactures.  Please feel free to contact us about servicing your vehicles air conditioning systems needs.  Triangle Auto Service, 4060 N.
