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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair at 711 E Lincoln Street 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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair in Bloomington when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Zaabs Full Service 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 Zaabs Full Service 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 Zaabs Full Service Auto Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 711 E Lincoln Street.

"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 Zaabs Full Service 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 Bloomington 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 309-386-1999 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 711 E Lincoln Street and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us

  • , 07/06/2020

    My classic car broke down in Bloomington. I live in Champaign (48 miles away). This car (a 1972 Cutlass Supreme convertible) almost never is more than 10 miles from home and has spent all but 2 nights in the past 25 years in my garage. To say I was anxious leaving it at an unknown, out of town repair facility would be an understatement. Zaabs and Bryan handled the repair quickly and very affordably. 5 stars! A good outfit that has earned my respect.

  • Went in for my breaks, amazing place! Great service, nice guys got it done fast.

    I brought my truck into Zaabs and they were quick and helped me understand exactly what they were doing. I finally found a mechanic here who I can trust.

    After a different repair shop's service manager boldly lied to me about how an expensive repair was diagnosed, I took my car to Zaabs. The actual diagnosis and proper repair by Brian was 10% of the other shops alleged "repair". I fully recommend Zaabs.

    Called about getting the motor from my passenger window replaced. Brought it in the same day and the next day my window had been fixed and replaced. Quick and friendly service. Thanks!
