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 Darrell's Firestone at 23534 Farmington Road 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 Darrell's Firestone in Farmington when it's time to recharge your AC freon.
Darrell's Firestone's Fast 3 Step Process:
"Does Darrell's Firestone Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"
- 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 Darrell's Firestone today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 23534 Farmington Road.
"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 Darrell's Firestone 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 Farmington 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 248-477-9090 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 23534 Farmington Road and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What People Say About Us
I cannot say how happy I was to see this place! The air pressure in my tires was low and one was dangerously low. Every gas station air machine that I passed was out of order. I pulled into Firestone and the super nice guys filled ALL my tires with a smile. THANK YOU!
Professional work at reasonable prices.
I took my old Ford Ranger in for a fuel leak. They fixed that problem and also found some broken, rusted out parts that were making the ride extremely rough. They replaced the shackles and tie rods and the truck rides better than it has in years.
I had an emergency with my lug nuts coming off and post breaking while I was driving and was pretty far from my house. I called the nearest tire shop and spoke with Jason about my situation. I'm so glad I went to Darrell's Firestone because they were super nice, fit me in asap and made sure my car was safe to drive home. I am super grateful. Would totally go there again when I don't have an emergency!
My 1996 Chevy pick up started running rough. I took it to Darrells. The mechanic worked his tail off to diagnose a very rare and strange issue. He was able to fix it and came in 600 dollars under the quote. Chris was my customer service agent and he was amazing. He kept me informed and was very thorough in his explaining the issue. This garage is trustworthy and honest as the day is long. I will come back for any and all of my mechanical and maintenance needs.
