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 Pro Automotive Inc. at 1741 Spruce 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 Pro Automotive Inc. in Martinsville when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Pro Automotive Inc.'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 Pro Automotive Inc. 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 Pro Automotive Inc. today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1741 Spruce 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 Pro Automotive Inc. 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 Martinsville 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 276-666-2167 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1741 Spruce St and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    I had the timing belt replaced on my 2009 Subaru Outback in late February at Pro Automotive. On 4/5/18, my car broke down on the highway as I was leaving Roanoke. It was towed to the closest Subaru dealer in Roanoke, where they determined that the timing belt had failed and severely damaged the engine. I contacted Pro Automotive the next day. They not only covered the cost of towing my Subaru in for them to inspect, but repaired my car at no charge to me when it was determined that the failure was due to a defective timing belt tensioner bolt. They also paid for my rental car while I was waiting to get my car back. It's back up and running like nothing ever happened. Fantastic service. I highly recommend Pro Automotive, and will definitely take my car back when it needs service again. Thanks, guys! You were great!

    Jeff and his technicians took the time to point out why my vehicle needed the work it did and gave me advice on how to avoid the problems in the future. They are extremely competent and charge fair prices for all of their labor.

    Received great service. I called earlier that day to see if they could fit in a car inspection on a used vehicle we were thinking about buying. We waited less than 10 minutes before the mechanic came in to get us to show us problems/possible problems with the car. I'm so glad we got another mechanic to look at it instead of the mechanics at the dealership. We would have over paid for a car that I'm not even sure we want anymore. We are taking his advice and continuing our search for a car.
