Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Frank's RV 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 Frank's RV Repair at 1142 Corbett 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 Frank's RV Repair in Clayton when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Frank's RV 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 Frank's RV 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 Frank's RV Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1142 Corbett 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 Frank's RV 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 Clayton 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 919-359-8456 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1142 Corbett Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

TESTIMONIALS

I couldn't give a higher recommendation than this one to Frank's RV. They are very busy, which is an indication of informed clientele. I waited for an appointment. I brought our Roadtrek 190 over for a generator problem. Frank diagnosed the problem, without even inspecting it, as a faulty fuel pump. An hour or so after we got home, Kevin called and confirmed Frank's diagnosis. Just an overnight at the shop and now parked at home, the generator is fixed. These guys are informed, smart, helpful, and very friendly. They are as efficient as they are personable and fairly priced. I recommend Frank's RV highly. Thanks to Frank and Kevin we are on the road again.

October, 2013 while traveling to Raleigh, NC we had a blow out in TN. After new tires were installed we drove on to Raleigh. Contacted Frank Catletteto come out and assess the damages. He ordered all parts(J wrap & fender) and when they arrived he installed and made all necessary repairs. This was on them passenger side. March, 2015 we had a blow out in NM, this time on the drivers side. After we installed new and larger wheels and tires, we again drove on to Raleigh, NC. Again Frank came out and made all repairs professionally and satisfactory. I would never hesitate to call for His services whenever I'm in the Raleigh area. Thank you for keeping us on the road!

We were getting ready to leave for Florida for the winter and had a problem with a slideout, it wouldn't retract. Frank came to our house, temporary fixed the problem, order some new parts, and installed them immediately, permitting us to continue with our plan to leave. He has been working on my motorhomes for the past 13 years and has done an outstanding job on everything he has done! I highly recommend him for anyone in the Raleigh area that has an issue with any RV.
