If you cannot answer this question – worry not. At Oceanworks Berkeley we are one of the few Bay Area shops that offer both the old refrigerant, the R134a, as well as the new R1234YF refrigerant.
R1234YF is specially formulated to be friendly to the environment. Equipment designed to work with the new refrigerant has different fittings and special on-board sensors to prevent R134a from contaminating the new R1234YF refrigerant.
So if you are not sure which refrigerant your car uses, make an appointment with Oceanworks Berkeley. We will check manufacturer database to determine which refrigerant is required by your vehicle, and will get your car’s ac serviced the same day.
We made a conscious choice to offer ac services regardless of which refrigerant a vehicle may need. We purchased equipment that allows us to services vehicles using the old as well as the new refrigerant. So no matter which refrigerant your vehicle requires, we can complete ac service and provide you with a one-stop automotive ac refill as well as repairs.
So call Oceanworks in Berkeley to make an appointment, and we will take good care of your vehicle. You can also make an appointment online, on our website, if you so prefer. If you are curious to find out more about the new refrigerant, visit our R1234YF web page.
