Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At CARZ at 5208 Brevard Rd we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.

"Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"

New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to CARZ in Horse Shoe when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

CARZ's Fast 3 Step Process:
  • Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
  • Add new R134a refrigerant.
  • Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
"Does CARZ Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by CARZ today and talk with our technicians about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 5208 Brevard Rd.

"Is Used Freon Ok?"

Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by CARZ works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.

Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Horse Shoe are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 828-891-3333 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 5208 Brevard Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

Testimonials

reviewiconHorse Shoe, NC
I have been using Carz in Horseshoe since November 2022. From that first appointment, I knew this was where I wanted to bring my car for any repairs and maintenance that I need. Andrew always listens to my concerns about my car and he as well as his employees go above and beyond to evaluate my car issues. I have had to stop by on two different occasions for an immediate concern and even though they are always very busy, Andrew made sure my car was looked at and safe for me to continue driving. I can?t say enough about his kindness and the expertise and courtesy of all of his employees. They are truly amazing and exemplify what real customer service and caring is all about. This is definitely a trustworthy auto repair shop. I recommend them highly, and wish I could give them more than five stars!

Stop by here one day to have some minor tire work done. Collin was super friendly, helped me on the spot, and didn't even charge me. I'll be back when something goes wrong on my vehicle.
