Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

D & B Bear Service

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 D & B Bear Service at 305 NW 2nd 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 D & B Bear Service in Corvallis when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

D & B Bear Service'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.
"Does D & B Bear Service Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

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 D & B Bear Service today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 305 NW 2nd 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 D & B Bear Service 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 Corvallis 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 541-752-3316 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 305 NW 2nd St and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What Our Customers Are Saying

reviewicon

Our daughter is a student at OSU and her car broke down and we live 5 hours away, but they were very helpful when they called my daughter and worked closely with her in getting her car diagnosed (they spent all day diagnosing the issue and discovered it was a bad transmission). They treated my daughter with full respect and friendliness and we really appreciated how they treated my daughter during the stressful time. D & B Bear Service came highly recommended by the OSU Parent Group and we most definitely have become their customer for future car repairs while our daughter is a student at OSU.

I worked for and was service manager at D & B BEAR for 31 years and have recently changed careers. Owner Denny Rice is a one-of-a-kind suspension specialist & provides a great family-driven full-service shop that you can count on. Thank you for the time spent with you all.

My parents have owned D & B Bear service for nearly 40 years. They pride themselves on being honest and always putting the customer first. They also have always offered friendly service. My father started working at his family's business when he was 12 years. His experience is something that you don't find that often. If you are looking for great, friendly, honest service, give Jack a call today.

We discovered these guys from a person who sold us a used car. It was a '94 Honda they had been responsible for since it was new. I have been driving for 55 years and have used many repair shops in many cities. We have used these guys on many occasions in the last several years for all of our cars' repairs. I used to work on cars myself when I was young so I know when I am getting BS. These guys are very very good - the best I have ever had. Do yourself a favor and give them a shot.

Great, friendly service. They kept me informed about the progress and estimates for the repairs they did throughout the day. I will always take my car back here as long as I live in Corvallis.

They have done me right a couple times now by coming in with quotes under others, and never going over their own quote, and my truck has been great!
