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 Bear Tire and Auto Center at 1409 Route 38 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 Bear Tire and Auto Center in Hainesport when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Bear Tire and Auto Center'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 Bear Tire and Auto 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 Bear Tire and Auto Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1409 Route 38.

"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 Bear Tire and Auto 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 Hainesport 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 609-261-1228 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1409 Route 38 and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    I was getting my car towed to another shop in the morning. The driver, who was very professional, said if I took it to Bear they'd beat the price, fix it up, and have it to me later before I needed to go to work. They did it all. Very impressed. Will go here for regularly scheduled maintenance and any other automotive problems from now on. Great customer service too!

    I'd like to encourage everyone to give bear a shot. They're a local family ran business that has been here for decades. The husband, wife, and son run the shop with their friendly staff. I've taken each of my cars here for almost 10 years. The do good work at fair cost. I like that they do small work like oil changes and tire repairs all the way to engine and transmission work. I don't have to have different people for tires, oil changes, and major repairs which is a time saver.

    Courteous, fast, professional work in towing me in, diagnosing my issue and completing repair. Job (starter replacement) came in below RepairPal median estimate, and was done really fast. All in all I would recommend this shop based on my experience there.
