As the weather heats up, our cars’ AC systems work overtime to keep us cool. But what happens when your car’s AC starts blowing hot air?
Low Freon Levels
There are a few reasons why your car’s AC might start blowing hot air. The most common reason is that the Freon levels in the system are low. Freon is the refrigerant that helps cool the air in the AC system. When it’s low, the AC system can’t do its job properly and hot air starts blowing out of the vents.
Another reason why your car’s AC might start blowing hot air is because of a problem with the compressor. The compressor is responsible for circulating the Freon throughout the system. If it’s not working properly, the Freon can’t do its job and hot air will start coming out of the vents.
Bad Evaporator Core
The evaporator core is responsible for absorbing heat from the air inside the car. If it’s not working properly, then that heat can’t be absorbed and you’ll start to feel it coming out of the vents as hot air.
These are just a few of the reasons why your car’s AC might start blowing hot air. If you’re having this problem, take your car to a mechanic at Collegeway Auto to have it diagnosed and repaired. Don’t suffer in the heat any longer!
