Stay Cool. Get Your Freon Recharged At C & J Auto & Truck Service Center
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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.
"Does C & J Auto & Truck Service Center 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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right.
"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 any C & J Auto & Truck Service Center location in the Richmond area when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
"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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center 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 the Richmond area 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 C & J Auto & Truck Service Center and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.
"Need 1234YF Freon?"
When it is the hottest day of the summer in the Richmond area, C & J Auto & Truck Service Center wants you to stay cool. Watch for early symptoms in your car or truck of an air conditioning system failure. Catching an issue early can save you time and money. If your AC system is charged with 1234YF freon and it creates an unusual amount of noise while running, produces an abnormal odor or blows warm air instead of cool air, then you need C & J Auto & Truck Service Center to help you with a recharge.
In 2021, the EPA required all new vehicles manufactured in the United States to replace 134a freon with 1234YF freon because the new 1234YF is better for the environment. The highly trained technicians at C & J Auto & Truck Service Center are on top of this new trend. They will evacuate and recharge auto AC systems with the 1234YF freon refrigerant recommended by your manufacturer. During air conditioning system diagnostics, we use advanced leak detection tools to ensure your car is not losing any of its freon.

The difference between current AC refrigerants such as 134a freon and 1234YF freon is significant. 134a freon is a greenhouse gas that is as harmful as carbon dioxide. 1234YF freon ensures that you and your passengers stay cool and comfortable all summer just like 134a freon, but it is not a greenhouse gas making it a better solution for the environment. From cooling issues to low airflow, you can rely on the pro mechanics at C & J Auto & Truck Service Center for fast and affordable AC repair and maintenance.
