Top Three Reasons For Why Your Car A/C is Blowing Warm Air

Your car’s air conditioner is a wonderful thing when it is working properly, but when it isn’t, you’re not going to enjoy riding around in your vehicle. If your air conditioner isn’t working right or blowing warm air, schedule an appointment at our shop so we can take a look.

While the summer heat doesn’t stay around as long as we’d all like, it can certainly make driving your car in summertime an unbearable experience if your air conditioning isn’t working at its peak. Compressors can wear out, Freon can leak, and fans can break. These are just a few of the things that we make sure are in tip-top condition to keep you cool all summer long.

Three Signs Your Car A/C is Faulty

1.) Refrigerant Leak

Refrigerant leaks are unique in the sense that refrigerant evaporates instantly into a gas when it isn’t under pressure. A/C systems are sealed and therefore don’t require refrigerant top-offs. If the refrigerant level is low, then there’s a leak that needs to be addressed.

Leaks in your A/C system don’t result in the typical tell-tale puddles of fluids under your car like those of an antifreeze or oil leak. Our certified mechanics are trained and experienced in searching for much less threatening signs of leaks like the oily residue which might be discovered on or around A/C hose units or connections.

2.) Worn Out Compressor

Your vehicle’s air-conditioning system relies on a compressor to move the refrigerant through a series of lines and filters that remove heat from the vehicle’s cabin. Because it is a complicated machine, compressor failure can be caused by a number of things, such as contaminants or other failed parts in the system.

Here are a few tips for prolonging the life of your vehicle’s air conditioner. First, make sure to run your car’s air conditioner for roughly 10 minutes once a month in the off-season, regardless of the temperature outside. This is easy to do in most modern vehicles since they activate the air conditioner when the defroster—used year-round—is activated.

3.) Problems With The Electrical System

Your car’s air-conditioning system has a maze of wires, including fuses and relays, that work together to provide safe operation. If one of these electrical components fails due to age or defect, the system shuts itself down to prevent damage or unsafe conditions for the operator. Without the proper test equipment and experience level of the individual diagnosing the problem, these issues are difficult to isolate.
