FRANKLIN AUTO SERVICE > The Best Auto Repair And Maintenance Services > AC REPAIR > RECHARGING YOUR CAR'S AC
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 Franklin Auto Service at 32725 Franklin 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 Franklin Auto Service in Franklin when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Franklin Auto Service's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Franklin Auto Service Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"
- Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
- Add new R134a refrigerant.
- Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
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 Franklin Auto Service today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 32725 Franklin 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 Franklin Auto Service 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 Franklin 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 248-626-2080 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 32725 Franklin Rd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

I am a car salesman over at Glassman Automotive Group (used cars Department) my name is Randall Walker. I send ALL of my customers that look at our NON SERVICED vehicles, over to franklin auto because they are EXTREMELY THOROUGH! There are no surprises for my customer after purchase which means they absolutely know if anything needs repair before they buy a less expensive vehicle that we have not nor will not service due to age or mileage. I highly recommend Franklin Auto not only for their thoroughness, but also for their UNBEATABLE PRICES! Take it from a car sales professional, you should be doing business with this auto shop.

I was a first time customer and had a great experience. They called me the day I towed my car there and told me what was wrong and how much it would be to fix it. (Needed a new ignition switch). My repairs took a little longer than expected and they were more than accommodating and even gave me a discount. They were honest and genuine with me over the phone and in person. 10/10 would recommend!
