Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Dahlgren Garage

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 Dahlgren Garage at 17061 Dahlgren 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 Dahlgren Garage in King George when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Dahlgren Garage'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 Dahlgren Garage 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 Dahlgren Garage today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 17061 Dahlgren 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 Dahlgren Garage 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 King George 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 540-663-3880 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 17061 Dahlgren Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What Our Customers Are Saying

reviewicon

Mike and his team at Dahlgren Garage are the best. A rear tire on my rental car went totally flat in the course of a couple hours. I took it in after work and got it fixed right away. It was a bad tire stem (thanks, Hertz) and Mike pointed out another serious problem with a big gouge in the sidewall, which could blow if I was on the highway! Now, what is that Roadside Emergency number?

Highly recommend this garage; knowledgeable staff that gave me a quote over the phone and didn't charge me a penny more. The other local shop I called wanted to charge me extra labor on top of a more expensive price to start. Another customer was talking about being overcharged elsewhere nearby as well. Don't throw away your money, go to the honest mechanics over at Dahlgren Garage.
