Signs You May Have Trouble With Your AC’s Compressor

Monday, August 3rd, 2020

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.

To put it briefly, the compressor is the “heart” of an air conditioner. 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. The compressor uses a powerful motor to do this, and it is where the majority of electricity used to power the air conditioner goes. If the compressor fails, not only will the AC no longer cool off the house, but it may require replacing the entire unit to fix the problem.

We’ve provided a list of signs you may have a compressor going bad. If you move fast to schedule air conditioning repair in Indianapolis, IN, with professionals, you may be able to save the compressor and avoid a pricey replacement.
