Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

 71 Verified Review(s)

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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair at 4655 118th Ave N Unit B 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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair in Clearwater when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Affordable Auto and Truck Repair'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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair 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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 4655 118th Ave N Unit B.

"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 Affordable Auto and Truck Repair 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 Clearwater 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 727-329-8728 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 4655 118th Ave N Unit B and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

I recently had a serious emergency with my Toyota tundra and the dealership really lied to me and try to take me for a ride almost $5000 until I found Affordable Auto they checked everything out so many things were over embellished from the dealership and or just a straight lie. They saved me $3000 plus I got brakes out of it as well as the things that needed to be fixed so I'm pretty happy and they've been very very responsive and have checked on me after service to make sure I'm happy with everything really means a lot that they follow up definitely will recommend this place to anybody.

The guys who work here are great at what they do. I came to them to get my compressor fixed under my car dealership warranty. Troy took care of the entire thing & even spent hours on the phone negotiating with my warranty company to make sure that I had the most affordable price & my car back as soon as possible (as he knows I have children & need a vehicle) They even threw in a desperately needed free oil change. I can't thank them enough. This is my new favorite spot to take my car & I will be recommending all of my friends & family to come here. Thank you so much to this crew for fixing my AC in the middle of summer!

5 STAR and above! Affordable Auto and Truck Repair of Clearwater is fast, fair and an affordable auto shop. I took my car in for battery terminals replacement, and they were much cheaper than the car dealership I went to earlier this morning who quoted me, with at least $200 cost for parts and labor. I highly recommend this auto shop! They are very professional, knowledgeable, very helpful & honest. Final price was exactly as they said with no last minute or hidden fees. It's hard to find an amazing genuine mechanic/auto shop! Thank you again Affordable Auto and Truck Repair of Clearwater. I am a very very very happy customer who saved a lot of money. I am definitely coming back!!!
