Why Is My Car A/C Blowing Hot Air?

Now that summer is here in Norfolk, VA, you can expect the temperatures to go up higher and higher. When it is hot, you naturally crank up the A/C whenever you get into your car. If it is the first time you’ve turned your auto air conditioning on since winter and you’re greeted with warm/hot air, what should you do? Well – you shouldn’t panic because tons of drivers have dealt with the same problem. 


When you bring your car to Carmasters Automotive, the experts can crack down on your car’s air conditioning system. Below are some of the common explanations for warm or hot A/C.

  • Low Refrigerant - Refrigerant is the substance responsible for cooling the air that gets blown out of your vents. When you run low on it, it means that a leak exists in the system. At our auto repair shop, we can fix the problem by repairing the leak and recharging your car vehicle with refrigerant. 
  • Broken A/C Compressor - The compressor is where the entire process starts. If it is malfunctioning, the air flowing through won’t be cooled.
  • Faulty Condenser - The condenser functions similarly to the radiator. It holds the refrigerant and gets cooled as it moves through the tubes. When the condenser is clogged, there won’t be refrigerant flowing through the system.
  • Bad Evaporator - The evaporator is in charge of absorbing the heat from that air inside the car and carrying it out. If there is an issue with this component, your car will feel warm.
