Why is my vehicle blowing warm air out of the A/C?
Summer can get dreadfully humid around these parts. On days like that, it’s nice to have the convenience of air conditioning. Unfortunately, just as tires can go flat and antifreeze can leak, the air conditioning system can malfunction. If you’ve turned on the A/C unit in your vehicle and feel warm air blowing out, you’re probably wondering what the reasoning is. Find out below!
Low refrigerant: this is typically the most common reason for warm air blowing out off the A/C. The refrigerant is what keeps the air cold, and it may be low due to leaks or failing parts.
Clutch cycling switch has failed: if the electromagnetic clutch on the air compressor won’t kick in because of a bad clutch cycling switch, the refrigerant won’t be able to be pressurized.
Blockage or debris in the system: there are a number of reasons for a blockage in the system. The condenser may be filled with debris or may be damaged, which will block cold air from exiting. This works the same way that kinking a hose will slow or halt the water spraying out.
How can I fix my car’s broken A/C?
