Capacitor Replacement is a simple fix and doesn’t take much time to complete. but why did the capacitor fail?
Throughout the summer HVAC units are put to the test! They will operate night and day, the capacitor stores energy for consistent energy distribution to fan motors, compressors and blower motors. With extended use comes drainage. This is common and expected. However, there is also the possibility of components coming closer to end of life causing the drain on the capacitor.
Getting the answer to the health of your HVAC unit is easy and will save energy on components being forced to run under imminent failure
Capacitors come in various sizes; one size does not fit all.
- Capacitor evaluation and replacement through electrical evaluation
- Proper installation of high voltage
- Performance check of motors and compressor
- Determination of “Hard start” installation or electrical modification
Capacitor Replacement and installation
Condensers are differently designed by manufacturers and have a precise determination of capacitance requirement.
This component conducts high voltage and should only inspected or replaced by a trained professional.
Operating an HVAC unit with a failing capacitor can cause damage to an otherwise healthy condenser.
As A/C condensers get older replacing a capacitor may not be enough to keep it running optimally. Secondary components (ex. Hard Start Kits) can be added to extend the life of an HVAC unit.
The primary signs of failure are simple, Either the fan doesn’t spin or there is only hot air coming out of your Air conditioner while operating in COOL mode.
We waste no time making proper determinations of your HVAC unit.
