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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto at 1370 Bellevue 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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto in Green Bay when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto 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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1370 Bellevue 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 Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto 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 Green Bay 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 920-406-6000 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1370 Bellevue St and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.
What People Say About Us
I cannot say enough amazing things about the staff and service that we received at Marv's! My son is there for college and needed some work done on his Jeep. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable from very far away. I highly recommend Marv's!
They keep my old beat up car running, I can afford their rates, they've always gotten it turned around in time so I've never missed work, and they stood behind their warranty when I needed an adjustment.
They are like family takes great care of me. Referred many family and friends who are taken very well care of. I can be out and talk about cars and I meet a stranger who recommends Marvs to me and I smile because all my vehicles there.
I have a hard time believing some of these one-star ratings are talking about the same place that I'm thinking of. Marv's is FANTASTIC and full of great people who want to do anything they can to please the customer. Sometimes they even vacuum or wash my car for free if they have a few minutes of time on their hands (which is rare)! I love this place and have referred tens of hundreds of people to them!
