When You Might Need Compressor Repair or Replacement

Monday, July 17th, 2017

compressor-repair-replacement-might-needThe compressor of your air conditioner is essentially the heart of your cooling system—applying energy to the refrigerant and propelling it through the coils to carry out the necessary heat exchange. Without an operational compressor, your air conditioner won’t produce any cooling effect whatsoever. That being said, if you find your air conditioner blowing warm air, it could be the compressor, or it may be that the thermostat wasn’t set correctly, or simply that you have a clogged air filter needing to be changed.

But when AC systems start to show serious signs of problems, the compressor is usually one of the main suspects, and the first thing our repair technicians take a look at. Many common AC issues arise from problems with either this component or its motor, necessitating professional AC repairs in Bulverde, TX.
