Posted on May 23, 2017

Standard Motor Products Inc. (SMP) is offering technicians who purchase the new Four Seasons Vehicle Comfort Center shop kit chances to win a refrigerant machine. “The Future Is Now” promotion aims to help shops switch to R1234yf refrigerant.

The contest runs through Sept. 30, 2017.

“As the automotive industry moves towards a greener future, the U.S. EPA has mandated that all vehicle manufacturers transition from R134a refrigerant by 2021,” says Melanie Gann, marketing communications specialist, Four Seasons.

“Over the last few years, many vehicle manufacturers have already chosen R1234yf air conditioning refrigerant and implemented this change. Our new Vehicle Comfort Center shop kit comes with an R1234yf gauge set and two paid registration forms to an EPA approved Section 609 training and certification program to help shops prepare for this transition.”

  • o-ring and gasket identification wall chart
  • two Koolgator cooling neck wraps
  • four SMP PTS on-demand A/C online training credits

Each kit also contains three ways to receive a total of 10 entries to win a Mahle ArcticPro R1234yf refrigerant machine. Get five entries by completing the promotional scorecard by installing 20 Four Seasons new or remanufactured compressors. Complete the Section 609 training and certification for three entries and get two additional entries for following us on social media.

Gann says, “The time is now for A/C specialists and repair shops to become familiar with the shift to R1234fy. The new Four Seasons Vehicle Comfort Center kit contains the items that shops need to make a smooth transition. But don’t delay, the ‘The Future is Now’ promotion is available for a limited time, so order today.”
