The A/C compressor is the most likely cause of the A/C blowing hot air due to failure of the front seal or internal compressor failure. There may be other possible failures but would need a thorough A/C check to verify the true cause due to many possibilities. I recommend you have a mechanic like one from YourMechanic inspect your vehicle’s A/C system for you.
