What Type of Refrigerant Does Your Car Have?

car air conditioning vents There are two types of car air conditioning refrigerant used in car systems, depending on the age of your car. Cars built before 1995 will normally use a refrigerant called R12. This particular type of refrigerant, known as Freon, stopped being used when it was discovered that it it had a negative impact on the ozone layer. If your car is older than 1995, but has a converted system installed, it probably has the refrigerant below.

The second type, used in vehicles after 1995, is called R134. It is different to R12 as it is far more environmentally-friendly. If you aren’t sure whether your car has been converted, you can check under the bonnet. There will be a sticker on the air conditioning unit that says it is R134 compliant.
