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 Surber's Inc at 8015 Burlington Pike 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 Surber's Inc in Florence when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

Surber's Inc'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 Surber's Inc 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 Surber's Inc today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 8015 Burlington Pike.

"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 Surber's Inc 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 Florence 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 859-525-7262 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 8015 Burlington Pike and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us

    Our van started making a very weird sound on our way to a softball tourney in pigeon forge. It just so happened that this occurred right before the exit that Surber's auto repair is on. Chad diagnosed right away that it was a water pump issue. He told us he would get it in within the week, but couldn't get it in right away. We were stuck there until our grandma picked us up, and he was most hospitable. He offered us drinks, transit to the mall, and also gave us phone numbers to different repair shops to see if they could get us in quicker. He did the repair within a week and was more concerned with how the softball tourney went and also asked right away about a personal matter, in which one of our family members recently had surgery. If you are in the Florence area, you should get all your auto repairs at Surber's! I wish he would move closer to my location because I would go to him in a heartbeat. Thank you Chad for all you did.

    Since 2002, upon recommendation from a neighbor, I've been taking my vehicles to Surber's Service on Hwy 18 in Florence, KY. My first impression was it appeared to be an old mechanic's shop from back in the 1960's. Well, that's exactly what it is. Except today, Chad Surber is trained and equipped to handle all the latest technologies. Just like everything else in life, my experiences have run from absolutely pleased with the results, to there was a problem, and it needed more attention to get it right. But, I still give this old school style auto repair shop the full five stars as a sign of my overall satisfaction.

    Have used them for the past 9 years on anything too difficult for me to handle myself. Never had a complaint, and the jobs are done right the first time.
