In this video, we talk about heating and cooling systems in cars. Watch or read the transcription below!

Automotive HVAC Systems

The weather in Northeast Ohio is extreme. It's really cold in the winter and really hot and humid in the summer, especially in July. When it comes to heating and air conditioning your car, how does Weber Automotive help you feel comfortable no matter the temperature? (Learn More About AC and Heating here.)

Automotive Air Conditioning

Automotive air conditioning beginning to become really high-tech. It used to be, in the 70s, a regular car would have roughly 4 pounds of refrigerant. Now, most cars have less than a pound of refrigerant. It's a huge difference. 

The Charge is Critical to System’s Operations

North Olmsted Auto RepairWhat really gets sensitive is that the typical charge in a car has to be right on the money. When you had a 4-pound system, you could be off a pound either way and it would cool just fine. Now, if it's off by a couple of ounces, it’s a different story and the vehicle won't cool right anymore. So, that charge really critical.That's a big leap but one of the reasons they were able to make it more efficient is that the charge can be right on the money.

Recharging Your Heating and Cooling System

In the image(right), you see both of our machines - state of the art Robinair recharging machines. The one is for the most common refrigerant of the last decade, 134 refrigerant, which is still a little bit more than half of the vehicles on the road. However, the auto manufacturers are switching over to 1234yf refrigerant.

What’s the Deal with the Next Generation of Auto Refrigerant?

The 1234yf refrigerant is less harmful to the ozone. The companies who produce this refrigerant know that when these are manufactured, eventually all of this refrigerant will be in the atmosphere. If a car gets in an accident, goes out of service, goes to a scrapyard - chances are it's going to be released into the atmosphere. 

The manufacturers want the refrigerant to be less harmful to the environment. The new machine and the new service is very specific, and you can't you can't mix the new refrigerant with the old in any way. You have to have this new recharging system. The Society of Automotive Engineers has created a very elaborate process of charging with this new machine and it’s made it very expensive. The refrigerant is also crazy expensive.

Refrigerant for Antiques and New Vehicles 

You typically have to use the refrigerant designed for the vehicle. With real old cars, like antiques, you can retrofit it to the 134, which was common again for the last decade, at least. If somebody does not want to retrofit to the 134, we still have an r12 recharging machine and an r12 refrigerant, which hasn't been available for many years, but that's for the antique cars.

Whether it's an antique, an intermediate, or a brand new up-and-coming refrigerant, we've got the systems to recharge those properly, and some really killer high tech leak detection equipment that's very uncommon in the industry.

We really care about quality customer service and affordability. With these services, we know we are giving our customers the best deal. Fix it right the first time and don't do any more than it needs, that’s our way of doing things at Weber Automotive of North Omsted, Ohio.
