Each year prior to the warm weather months - or - any time it isn't working to your satisfaction, bring it in for an A/C System Check.
Because the refrigerant used in some air conditioning systems is considered harmful to the environment, it is important that it not be allowed to escape during servicing. We begin each air conditioning service with a leak detection test. Our technicians use a sealed, environmentally friendly process that captures the refrigerant, cleans it, replenishes it and returns it to your vehicle's air conditioning system good as new.
Auto air conditioning systems built before 1995 use the refrigerant R-12 or (CFC-12), also referred to as Freon. The EPA determined that Freon was destroying the ozone layer and in 1995, all production ceased. Freon is now extremely expensive and difficult to find. HCAR offers a retrofit service that enables your A/C system to use the inexpensive R-134a refrigerant. The retrofit pays for itself in the cost savings on the refrigerant.
This is required by law and is a mandatory part of any air conditioning retrofit procedure.
This service, like all services performed at Haller Complete Automotive Repair, is advised based on manufacturer's recommendations or as needed as determined by our inspection and based on industry standards.
