Re: [DML] R12 to R134 Conversion Help

Mike, just be aware that when you convert to R134 you will be losing some of the cooling capacity, I believe around 10%. The R134 does not transfer as much heat as well as R12. 
I am told that there is a substitute that works as well. 
Do you feel that you can lose that much and be comfortable?
