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 Byrd Automotive Repair at 116 Patton Ct 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 Byrd Automotive Repair in Nicholasville when it's time to recharge your AC freon.Byrd Automotive Repair'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.
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 Byrd Automotive Repair today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 116 Patton Ct."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 Byrd Automotive Repair 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 Nicholasville 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 859-885-9121 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 116 Patton Ct and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

Wilmore / Nicholasville / Lexington area friends, this is a shout out to Byrd Automotive in Nicholasville. They are honest. A few years ago, a used car we bought developed an expensive problem long after the regular manufacturer's warranty expired. Byrd Automotive could have charged us nearly $3K to fix it, but instead, they told us about an extended warranty campaign from the manufacturer for that particular issue for a dealer to fix it for free. Then, when one of the local Toyota dealers botched that repair job by failing to secure a snap ring holding an axle in the transmission, Byrd diagnosed that problem too, brought me back into the garage to show me what the dealer did wrong so I could take pictures while the car was up on the rack to show the dealer, and Byrd didn't charge me a dime for that help. I could tell you other stories of Byrd Automotive's help with our vehicles. The bottom line is they are honest, determined, competent, qualified, and reliable. Even with hard jobs on old vehicles (one time a rusted part on a seventeen year old truck broke one of Hayden's tools, but he still found a way to get the job done), they never let us down. The guys at Byrd Automotive are Toyota specialists with walls full of factory training certificates. I would trust them with anything, and especially if you drive a Toyota, they know more about your Toyota than the dealers do and even do their own research. I'm posting this now because even years after we moved to Ohio, I still call occasionally with Toyota questions and Gene, Cameron, and Hayden are always happy to help by sharing what they know. If you need a mechanic in the area, especially for a Toyota, Gene, Cameron, and Hayden at Byrd Automotive are rock solid, trustworthy and dependable. I appreciate them and wanted you to know about them.
