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 Spatig Bros Auto at 1089 E Sancrest Dr 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 Spatig Bros Auto in Preston when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Spatig Bros Auto'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 Spatig Bros Auto 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 Spatig Bros Auto today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1089 E Sancrest Dr.

"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 Spatig Bros 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 Preston 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 208-852-3355 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1089 E Sancrest Dr and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

    Spatig Bros towed my van for me after I hit a deer. Because I was an hour from home, I had nobody there to pick me up. He took me to his shop where he offered me coffee, water and a soft chair then proceeded to do his work. He checked on me every 5 minutes or so just to make sure I was okay and then spent several minutes going over the damage to my car with me. He was incredibly kind both at the scene and at the shop and made a really hard morning that much easier. Great customer service!

    My truck broke down today heading through mink creek. The owner came and took care of us. He was very professional and extremely nice. The ride back in his truck was comfortable. He has a great personality that definitely helps get you in a better mood after a bad day. Rates were very good too. I would definitely recommend. But I hope I never need him again.

    Had our car brought here for insurance work. Didn't end up having it fixed because it was totaled but they were easy to deal with.

    Spatig Brothers was the best experience with a company I've had for a while. I'm from Salt Lake and wrecked my car near Preston. Maybe I'm just not use to the small town way of doing things, but I was more than taken care of. They really care and will be more than fair with you.
