Climate change
« on: August 11, 2019, 08:04:40 PM »
Been thinkin'...we had to switch from R12 to R134 because the R12 was causing a hole in the ozone above the South Pole.  Now, if I want to work on my A/C system I'm still required to have the R134 recovered rather than just vent it to (the South Pole?).  Can anyone tell me why we went from R12 to a less efficient but just as lethal (to penguins) R134?  What does it cost to have the system "recovered" and do they use it again?

I didn't have much interest in A/C until I started reading this article. Very interesting, thanks Moose!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
