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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center at 1585 Pinecrest St 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center in Saint Augustine when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Evans Automotive & Tire 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 Evans Automotive & Tire 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 Evans Automotive & Tire Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1585 Pinecrest St.

"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 Evans Automotive & Tire 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 Saint Augustine 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 904-819-6599 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1585 Pinecrest St and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    I was given a wait time of 2 hours and they had my window motor replaced in about 45 minutes! The gentleman I spoke with was very respectful. The price is better than any other shop around me. I Would not hesitate to go back to Evan's for any of my vehicle service needs.

    Best car repair experience! We had car trouble on I95 heading home from vacation. Being out of town, I called the first auto repair place that came up in the area. They recommended a towing service and rental car place. It was close to closing time but they went above and beyond to diagnose, repair and get us back on the road home. The entire shop went above and beyond to help us. Would highly recommend this company.

    My mother-in-law's Camry starting running rough while on vacation. We looked up AAA mechanics and found Evan's Automotive. Even though they were very busy they worked the Camry in and managed to fix it by the end of the day so that my MIL could have a safe drive home. Excellent service, and very accommodating!
