In your shop, you deal with knowns and unknowns every day. While you might know what a customer's complaining about when they drop off their car, you won't know the cause of that complaint until you investigate it further.
The upcoming changes to mobile air conditioning service regulations have their own set of knowns and unknowns.
Here's what we know:
-HFO-1234yf Refrigerant has been accepted by EPA as R-134a's successor.
-Cars are entering the vehicle fleet with HFO-1234yf.
-HFO-1234yf will be roughly 10 times as expensive as R-134a, at least initially.
-Unique fittings and labels will be required for the new refrigerant.
-New equipment will be required.
-Some revisions to the ASE Section 609 Refrigerant Program will be coming.
Here's what we don't know:
-The exact date when EPA will release its new requirements for air conditioning service.
-The scope of details that will impact the ASE Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Program. This means things like content changes, and credentialing requirements.
-When you’ll be presented with your first HFO-1234yf service opportunity.
OK, so, you know change is on its way. Now, how can ASE help you cross the threshold from the unknown to the known?
