AC Compressor Repair Can Keep Your Air Conditioner Running For Years

The AC compressor is the heart of any AC unit. So when something goes wrong with it, it is essential to get it working again. The compressor is typically located near the condenser and fan in the large AC box outside the house.

Many people don’t really understand the way air conditioners work. They assume that AC units add cold air to the interior space, but they don’t. They actually work in an opposite manner by taking the heat out of the interior space.

Refrigerant enters the compressor as a cool gas, and the compressor then compresses the gas until it is very hot and under intense pressure.  The gas then runs through condensing coils, which allows the heat to dissipate into the outside air. Then it enters another set of coils and evaporates, and it is this evaporation that actually removes heat from the air.

The hot air is then blown out of the house, lowering the temperature inside until it is comfortable. Most of the time, a compressor is a very reliable piece of equipment that should easily give up to 15 years of good service. When that doesn’t happen, it’s usually not just the result of regular wear and tear.

Identifying Underlying Problems

If the compressor has gone bad, it is a sign that there is some underlying problem that must be fixed. Some of these possible problems include oil leaks or oil pump failure, some kind of system contamination from dirt or outside air, or an electrical failure.

It could be a problem with overheating resulting from not getting enough suction cooling or any of a number of other potential problems. The compressor is expensive to replace, but it is usually possible to fix the problem and get it back in good working condition.

Regular maintenance will help to prevent these kinds of breakdowns and can maximize the number of good years of service you get out of your compressor. Maintenance will identify potential problems early and take care of them before they cause major damage.
