Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Ron's Repair Service

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 Ron's Repair Service at 505 W North Street 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 Ron's Repair Service in Owatonna when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Ron's Repair Service'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 Ron's Repair Service 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 Ron's Repair Service today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 505 W North Street.

"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 Ron's Repair Service 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 Owatonna 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 507-451-8678 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 505 W North Street and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I called because one tire was low - after sliding into a ditch and being able to drive out - This was a Friday around 4:15. Will allowed me to come in, filled the tire, removed a piece of trim that had come loose during my excursion into the ditch, sprayed out the rest of the snow in the tire-which stopped the steering wheel from shaking. This was all done in a short period of time and I was able to finish my trip to Minneapolis. I wish I lived closer to this shop! I was thrilled with the service!

I have driven my car back to the dealership where I bought the car from for years which was over an hour away because I never felt I received the honest and straightforward auto service I deserved in Owatonna. Out of a real sense of urgency I gave Ron's Repair a try and I can't tell you how pleased I have been with the customer service as well as the auto repairs, maintenance and straight answers about what I really need to take care and what can wait. I highly recommend you give Ron's a chance to take care of your auto repairs needs they won't disappoint.

I was quite impressed with my first experience with Rons repair. My car just came out of warranty and I was having some issues with my A/C. Rons was able to get my car in right away and had it fixed that same day, but what really made them stand out is I had a cabin air filter in my backseat that I was going to install at some point and when I picked up my car they had informed me that they went ahead and installed that filter for me. I was not expecting that, saved me the hassle of doing it and it compelled me to give them a great review. All my service work will from now on be going to Rons!!
