We Service all car and truck Air Conditioners

Now that spring is here, the weather is warming up and now is the time to check on your air conditioner before it gets hot. In the summer, it will be reaching in the low 90’s degrees in San Marcos Ca. Before our Las Vegas trip last year, we get our car serviced at Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos and our trip went flawless. Charlie keeps our car running at tip top shape, so the exception for everything to work properly is on. We really needed the Air conditioner that weekend as the temperature was around 100 degrees the entire 4 days. We are grateful for Charlie at Paradise Auto & Truck Center because our trip was one of the best trips we ever had.

Now is the time to check your A/C system, not after it runs out of cold air. June/July/August is just around the corner and it is very likely to reach 90 degrees and you are sweltering in heat. Air Conditioning systems needs to be serviced and may eventually break with usage. If your air is not as cold as it used to be, there could be a few things going on that are quick and easy to service. Go see Paradise Auto and Truck Center for a Summer A/C Special on Air Conditioning Service. They’ll add the necessary freon to make sure your car or truck is running cool all summer long.

If you are experiencing any issues with your A/C, bring it in to Paradise Auto and Truck Center in San Marcos Ca to have it looked at by our expert mechanics. We will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your A/C system that will include examining the internal controls and blower, checking the radiator coolant, hoses, pressure and thermostat. We will also inspect the compressor belt, inspect for leaks and perform a cooling pressure test.  It may be time to recharge you’re A/C with replacement Freon. This is a simple and cheap way to repair your air conditioner and stay cool in your car.

So what is freon?
According to Wikipedia, Freon is a registered trademark of The Chemours Company, which uses it for a number of halocarbon products. They are stable, nonflammable, moderately toxic gases or liquids which have typically been used as refrigerants and as aerosol propellants. These include the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that cause ozone depletion (such as chlorodifluoromethane), but also include newer refrigerants which typically include fluorine instead of chlorine and do not deplete the ozone layer. Not all refrigerant is labelled as “Freon” since Freon is a brand name for the refrigerants R-12, R-13B1, R-22, R-502, and R-503 manufactured by The Chemours Company.

Is freon safe?
According to DuPont Material Safety Data Sheet, CFCs and HCFCs are colourless, volatile,
toxic liquids and gases with a faintly sweet ethereal odour. Overexposure at concentrations of 11% or more may cause dizziness,
loss of concentration, central nervous system depression, and/or cardiac arrhythmia. Vapours displace air and can cause
asphyxiation in confined spaces.[4] Although non-flammable, their combustion products include hydrofluoric acid and related
compounds.
