Reasons Your Car’s A/C Is Blowing Hot Air

Reasons Your Car's A/C Is Blowing Hot Air

Getting into a vehicle in the midst of a sweltering day, only to find out the air conditioning isn’t doing its job, is a miserable experience. Avoid this scenario by taking your car in for regular maintenance. Care for your car’s A/C and avoid high repair bills.

Many parts make up an automobile’s air conditioning system; when any of these meets an early demise it can be problematic. The condenser is located on the front of the vehicle, receiving cool air while the car is driven. Compressed refrigerant cools that air to an ambient temperature before it is sent back through the AC system to take the heat out of the air. Anything blocking this air can lead to complications that might only take a minute to fix but could be costly.

The condenser unit’s coils can be damaged by road debris. In the worse case, the unit itself is punctured. Large punctures require a condenser replacement job. Low refrigerant or broken cooling fans are two more reasons a car’s air conditioning might be blowing hot air.
