Reasons Why Your Car AC is Not Blowing Cold Air

"There are several reasons why your car's air conditioner isn't blowing cold air."

There are several reasons why your car's air conditioner isn't blowing cold air. So, why isn't your car's air conditioner cold?

Here are the most common causes of your air conditioner not working properly.

Blocked or Broken Condenser

The condenser's job is to convert compressed air gases to liquid again. The refrigerant will not flow if the condenser is clogged with trash or is broken.

When this happens, our air conditioner will not blow cold or even cool air.

Electrical Problems

It's also possible that your car's air conditioning isn't working because of an electrical problem.

Some components of your air conditioning system, such as your compressor, are electrical. It can also be disabled by anything as simple as a blown fuse.

The A/C Compressor Doesn’t Engage

A compressor is at the core of any air conditioning system, and its purpose is to compress the coolant.

When the compressed air expands, it becomes extremely cold. When air is blasted across cold freon-filled metal, the air cools quickly.

Blend Air Door is stuck

The warm air that runs over your engine enters your car when you heat it. When you turn on your car's air conditioning and try to chill it down, a "blend air door" swings across your ventilation system, blocking the warm air from entering and allowing the cold air from the A/C system to enter.

When the blend air door gets blocked, no matter how well the rest of your car's A/C system is working, you'll just keep getting warm air.

Air Conditioning Needs A Recharging

Even the most efficient air conditioners can lose a little amount of refrigerant over time, usually so slowly that you won't feel the difference. And you might never notice that your car's current A/C low temperature has changed by more than a degree or two.

However, if you find that your car's air conditioning isn't working, you may be low on Freon. It's one of the most prevalent reasons why your car's air conditioning isn't as chilly as it should be.
