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 Auto Performance Center at 922 US Hwy 70 West
Unit A we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.
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 Auto Performance Center in Garner when it's time to recharge your AC freon.Auto Performance Center'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 Auto Performance Center today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 922 US Hwy 70 West
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 Auto Performance Center 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 Garner 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 919-772-5957 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 922 US Hwy 70 West
Unit A and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What our clients are saying about us
We have established longterm and stable partnerships with various clients thanks to our excellence in solving their automotive needs!
I needed body work done on my pickup truck. I spoke with Mr. Ward regarding estimates. Their prices were very fair, and I authorized the work. My particular repairs required paint work; body work; and some mechanical work. The finished product was excellent! Additionally, both Mr. Ward and Mya (from the office) kept in touch with me throughout the process, with updates and answers to my questions. They were both so friendly, quick, and competent! I will definitely be back should I need auto body repair, and I would happily recommend their shop to anyone!
I've visited this business several times for regular maintenance and repair. The service has always been fantastic. The wonderful woman in the office is friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. The mechanics are thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and straight forward without trying to up-sell you at every turn. This is the type of garage I grew up around. The money seems to go toward hiring highly qualified people, and not toward making the garage look trendy or sporty. If my mom lived in this area, Auto Performance Center is where her car would go. I can't give any higher praise than that.
