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 Henderson Auto at 9075 SW BURNHAM ST 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 Henderson Auto in TIGARD when it's time to recharge your AC freon.Henderson Auto'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 Henderson Auto today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 9075 SW BURNHAM ST."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 Henderson Auto 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 TIGARD 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 503-639-1768 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 9075 SW BURNHAM ST and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

The team at Henderson Auto went above & beyond & far exceeded our expectations!! The week of 9/6 we left our home in SoCal on a 4 week road trip in NoCal the battery light came on and we limped into a Ford dealership where they diagnosed a bad battery and weak alternator.they replaced the battery & sent us on our way in Beaverton we again went completely dead, called AAA which took us to a nearby Ford dealer where we were told it would be 9/19 before they could look at our F-150. I called another dealer and they sad it would be 9/30 before they could check it friend recommended we try Henderson as did the tow truck driver Henderson said it may be the 13th before they could check the truck took it to Henderson on the 8th, they did a 10 point inspection on the 9th, repaired everything that needed fixed including a new alternator (urgent), headlight, license plate light (non-urgent) and had the truck ready for a touch free pickup on that afternoon!! A gigantic thank you to Brian, Katie & their team for keeping our trip on schedule!!

I picked up my 4Runner today after an alignment on Monday and a recheck today. I was very pleased to see that it holds straight on the freeway. Thank you for helping me work through this issue. I also wanted to thank you very much for the new caster for which you did not charge. That is ABOVE AND BEYOND service. I will definitely keep you in mind for future work and have already told two people about you.
