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 Mickey's Car E.R. at 818 York Road 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 Mickey's Car E.R. in Towson when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Mickey's Car E.R.'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 Mickey's Car E.R. 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 Mickey's Car E.R. today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 818 York Road.

"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 Mickey's Car E.R. 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 Towson 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 443-652-3678 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 818 York Road and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What our clients are saying about us

We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!

What a great experience! Knowledgeable and professional! The turbo went up on my Acura RDX. The dealer pronounced my car DOA. They gave me an inflated estimate and insisted I was better off getting a new car. A close friend of mine recommended that I take my car to Mickey. I did just that and Mickey and his top notch team of Car Docs went to work on the patient. They were able to resuscitate her and save her life for a fraction of what the dealer wanted. Mickey kept me informed throughout the process. Even sending me video of the surgery! The turnaround was quick and I was back on the road in no time. Seriously, whether it's an oil change, or a major repair, Mickey and his team are equipped to do the job. You can expect an honest diagnosis, fair price, and outstanding workmanship. Mickey stands behind his work. I highly recommend Mickey's Car E.R. I was completely satisfied with my experience. quotes-image
