All parts of an air conditioning system are important since you can’t have one malfunction and expect the AC to keep working as well as it’s supposed to. But some components have bigger and potentially more expensive effects when they begin to fail, and no part is more important in this way than the compressor.

It is what forces the refrigerant to circulate between the sets of coils and change pressure and temperature so the air conditioner can move heat out of the house.
