Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

D & H Automotive

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 D & H Automotive at 1270 Hartell Ave
Suite C 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 D & H Automotive in Redding when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

D & H Automotive'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 D & H Automotive 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 D & H Automotive today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 1270 Hartell Ave
Suite C.

"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 D & H Automotive 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 Redding 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 530-221-4132 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 1270 Hartell Ave
Suite C and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What Our Customers Are Saying

We came here to get my husbands oil changed and brakes done. I called and they were able to get us in the very next day. After we had gone somewhere else where the owner was trying to get over on us, it was very refreshing to come here and have honest people working on our truck. They had it done in the same day and at a good price.

I over heated on I-5 and had it towed in to D&H Automotive. They took great care of me. The price for what I had done to my car was very reasonable. Very professional and honest. The owner stayed way past 5 working on my car, I needed to get back on the road. I totally would go back there and I suggest if you're from out of town you would want to go there for great service. Thanks again D & H!

During the tail end of a 2 week road trip my alternator broke down. Out of 10 places we called in redding: the owner of this shop (Shane) was a godsend. He dropped what he was doing to squeeze us in and help us out. We were back on the road with a new alternator for a reasonable price in an hour. Considering the vulnerable situation we were in, Shane showed us upmost humanity and professionalism. 6/5
