Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Bob's Imported Auto Repair

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 Bob's Imported Auto Repair at 1314 Rufina Cir
Suite 8 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 Bob's Imported Auto Repair in Santa Fe when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Bob's Imported Auto 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 Bob's Imported Auto 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 Bob's Imported Auto Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1314 Rufina Cir

"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 Bob's Imported Auto 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 Santa Fe 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 505-473-4508 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1314 Rufina Cir
Suite 8 and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

TESTIMONIALS

Friendly, highly skilled, professional, owner-operated, honest; everything you want in a business.
Kurt is a wonderful person & mechanic! He has very fair prices, does a great job, and is great at communicating. I will always bring my volvo there.
Kurt is a gem. Truly one of those people who is a benefit to the local community. If you own a Volvo, especially an older model, Kurt is your guy. He is invaluable in his knowledge, commitment to quality, and competence with any work your car may require. I took my classic Volvo to him on two occasions, and he went beyond the boundaries of what was originally specified for the work needed. He was able to identify key items that needed attention (not trolling for dollars - real things) and took care of them at the highest level of quality. Because of Kurt's attention to detail and diligence, my classic Volvo operates as new. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
One of the most straight forward and clear communicating mechanics I have had the pleasure of working with.
Clean and very helpful, specializes in Volvo repairs. Great communication and gets your car back on the road safely.
Wonderful place! Kurt, the new owner, is very knowledgeable and will tell you exactly what your vehicle needs. Highly recommended.
