NO not at all. 134A is a totally different refrigerant and is not compatable with a home A/C system.

As RevDi said - only if your system can reach the charge pressure needed (car systems tend to run non the low pressure side), AND if your unit uses R134A - which is very rarely used in home air conditioners - I have only heard of it in window and portable type units, and one foreign-made mini-split line. Generally home air conditioners run R-22 (Freon) in older systems, or most commonly R-410a (Puron or Furon or similar names) in newer/current units. Not compatible with R-134A, either in terms of gas or lubricating oil (which circulates with the refrigerant) compatibility, or in terms of normal operating pressures for efficient operation.
