Vehicle Maintenance

Air Conditioner

  • Many older auto air conditioners contain chemical refrigerants that can harm the atmosphere.
  • Pre-1995 models used about 3 pounds of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC-12 also known as Freon).
  • When CFC’s leak out, they damage the stratospheric ozone layer.
  • 1995 or newer models, most likely contain HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons).
  • HFCs do not damage the stratospheric ozone layer but do contribute to climate change.
  • Have a trained mechanic look for leaks each time the vehicle gets a tune up.
