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 John's Service Center at 4650 Portsmouth Blvd 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 John's Service Center in Portsmouth when it's time to recharge your AC freon.John's Service 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.
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 John's Service Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right.

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 John's Service 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 Portsmouth 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 757-488-1964 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 4650 Portsmouth Blvd and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.
More AC Repair Services:
I was looking for a reputable repair shop to take my car for service. My neighbors recommended John's. I first took my car for state inspection and oil/filter change. I was in and out in less than an hour. On another occasion my son thought he needed a battery for his truck. We stopped in at John's as he was going to lunch, but he took the truck in and replaced the battery. My wife took her car to several local shops including some dealerships due to a loud roar in the front. She was told she needed a hub bearing. The price of repair ranged from 600-800 dollars and about 4hrs to perform the repairs. I took her car to John's who was booked full all week. I explained my wife had to go out of town for Christmas and was afraid to drive it with a bad bearing. I was told to bring it in tomorrow morning. He did the work for less than all the other shops and completed the work in about two hours. Again, this shows a business that cares about customer satisfaction. Needless to say, John's Service Center has won over my entire family and we have found a place that appreciates our business. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a decent place to service your vehicle needs.
