How Often We Recommend AC Service?
The Extremely Rare AC Auto Service Equipment You’ve Never Heard of, But Your Car Needs
This is the the R1234yf Refrigerant Evacuation and Recharge Machine. And if you drive a newer model car, your car needs this machine; but chances are your mechanic does not have one in their shop.
Good Works Auto Repair is one of only a handful of independent shops in the entire Valley that has the R1234yf Refrigerant Evacuation and Recharge Machine.
What makes this equipment so special is that it is the ONLY machine that can service AC systems for late-model autos from 2016 and on. These vehicles have a new refrigerant formula that requires less refrigerant gas in the a/c system, and cannot be substituted with any other type of refrigerant without destroying the integrity of the entire a/c system.
So why don’t most mechanics have one? Well because they are very expensive.
But if your mechanic doesn’t have this equipment, they could cross-contaminate your car’s system with the wrong oil and/or refrigerant and destroy the car’s system internally, costing thousands of dollars in damage!
Good Works Auto Repair purchased our machine just a few years ago, and because they are so rare, we actually offer this service to other repair shops and body shops to help them service their customers cars!
It is just one of the many things Good Works Auto Repair is constantly doing to invest in the latest and most innovative equipment in the industry. We are committed to providing state-of-the-art auto and light truck repair.
The Workhorse of the AC Auto Service Equipment Systems
Unlike the the R1234yf, the R134a is an extremely common machine used to service auto AC systems. At Good Works Auto Repair, we actually have three of these workhouse machines and we are able to effectively and efficiently service your car’s AC system and get your auto back out on the road blowing crisp, cold air.
The Hybrid System
Hybrid Cars Need Specialized AC Repair Equipment!
To further serve our customer’s needs, one of our R134a Systems is actually a more specialized “Hybrid” system.
This less common Hybrid system is the only AC Service System that can be used on Hybrid Cars. They feature a cleaning and filtration system that takes all contaminants out of the hoses that are connected to the vehicle’s AC system.
You see, although hybrid vehicles use the same refrigerant, they use a completely different lubrication oil. That is crucial when servicing HYBRID vehicles because the a/c compressor on a hybrid is driven by an internal electric motor that emits electromagnetic energy that can attract metallic particles found in the ferrous oil used in conventional vehicle a/c systems. Thus a non-ferrous oil has to be used in Hybrids.
If your mechanic used a regular R134a System, the machine would not be able to remove contaminating oil particulates and that residue would get introduced into the hybrid system. Those particles would eventually destroy the compressor and contaminate the entire system resulting in a $3,000 to $4,000 repair!
Using the right equipment takes understanding, training, and investment. It is just one of the many things Good Works Auto Repair is constantly doing to offer our Hybrid Auto customers the best service available.
