On a hot summer day, the last thing you’d want is for your car's air conditioning to stop working or break down. Instead of having to sit through the warm air and sweat, you need to do something about it. Read on to learn more about what could be causing your auto A/C to blow warm air.
If your car vents are only blowing warm or hot air, it could be due to low levels of refrigerant. Freon or refrigerant is the substance that gets circulated throughout the air conditioning system to eliminate the heat and humidity from the air. Over time, worn valves and faulty evaporators can cause the refrigerant to leak out. At X-tra Mile Auto Care, can help you look for leaks and recharge your A/C.
The condenser is in charge of cooling down the hot freon after it passes through the compressor. When the condenser is affected, you will get a blast of warm air whenever you power your A/C on.
Poor wiring can stop your car’s A/C from working as it should too. These types of problems are harder to identify, and you will need someone with electrical expertise to diagnose the problem. If you suspect your warm A/C is broken due to faulty wiring, please give us a visit soon.
A faulty compressor can also cause your vents to blow out hot air. Typically, issues with the compressor occur after long periods of the A/C not being used. To keep it in good condition, you should run the A/C for several minutes every month (including the winter). The defrosters would be fine too.
If you believe your car air conditioning system needs service, please call or visit the experts at X-tra Mile Auto Care soon.
