Why Is My Air Conditioner Blowing Warm Air?

When it is hot outside, the last thing you want to do is hop in your car with warm air blasting on your face. For San Diego drivers, most people tend to rely on their vehicle’s air conditioning system most of the year. They turn to the team at Import Auto Specialists Autoworks for all their auto air conditioning needs. Warm air is a common A/C problem – let’s discuss some of the reasons why your car ride may be hot.

Bad Compressor 

The compressor is a component that takes high pressures to compress the chemical refrigerant to make cool air. When you haven’t run your air conditioning in a while, such as in the winter month, it can stop working from being inactive. A malfunctioning compressor will cause warm air to blow out your vents.

Faulty Condenser 

When the compressor can successfully pressurize the refrigerant, it pushes the refrigerant into the condenser where it transforms from a gas to liquid form. Unfortunately, the condenser is prone to getting clogged or damaged from road debris, since it sits in the very front of most cars. If the condenser is bad, you may not receive cool air.

Low Refrigerant Levels

One of the most common reasons for A/C problems is low or leaking refrigerant. Leaks can be minor to severe. When your car isn’t budging with cool air, this is one of the first areas that automotive repair specialists test.

Malfunctioning Fans

The fan(s) in your car’s A/C system is responsible for cooling the refrigerant and blowing cold air into the passenger cabin. The fan can stop for a number of reasons, including a burnt or blown fuse. You may notice weak air flow or no air flow at all
