Frequently Asked Questions
What liquid do I need for car AC?
The liquid you will need for your car's AC is refrigerant. This is a specially formulated mixture that is created to transform hot air into cold hair by absorbing and releasing heat. Refrigerant is also known as Freon, and the most common Freons are R-12, R-134A, and HFO-1234yf. R-12 was banned in the mid-1990s after it was discovered to be depleting our planet's ozone layer.
What does AC mean in automotive?
AC in the automotive industry refers to the air conditioning system within vehicles. Car AC units use refrigerant to remove the hot air and moisture from air to cool your vehicle. There are three types of air conditioning systems: orifice tube systems, expansion valve systems, or combination systems. Air conditioning systems are made up of compressors, condensers, evaporators, orifice tubes or expansion valves, and an accumulator or receiver-drier.
What is air conditioning equipment?
The air conditioning equipment you can find in your vehicle is made up of compressors, condensers, evaporators, orifice tubes or expansion valves, and an accumulator or receiver-drier. These all play a different role within your AC system. Refrigerant is required to remove hot air and moisture. The vehicle's compressor compresses the refrigerant into a liquid, putting it in a high-pressure state. Because of this pressure, the liquid is forced out of your compressor and into the hoses within your AC hose assembly to carry the refrigerant through the system.
