What is an AC Compressor?

The AC compressor is a vital part of your AC unit. It circulates refrigerant throughout the system and is responsible for providing the cooling power that keeps your home comfortable during hot summer months. The fluid in the compressor is compressed by a piston, which creates heat. This heat is then dissipated by the condenser, which helps keep the system running efficiently. 

Following are some of the signs that the AC compressor is not working at its total capacity and that you need to call the professionals:

Reduced Air Flow From the Vents

The air vents are the exit point for the conditioned air in your home. If you notice a sudden drop in airflow, it could indicate that something is blocking the vents. One of the most common culprits is a build-up of dirt and debris around the vents. It can happen over time as the air vents are used. Another possibility is that an object has been placed too close to the vents, restricting the airflow.

If you notice a reduction in airflow, check the vents to see if they are blocked. If they are, clear the debris and ensure nothing is blocking them. You should also check the air filter to see if it needs replacement. 

Strange Noises Emanating From the Compressor Unit

Do you hear strange noises coming from your outdoor compressor unit? These could be signs that your system is overworked and not functioning properly. It happens for various reasons like loose fan belts, damaged motor bearings, etc. If you notice any such issue, it's best to call a professional for an inspection immediately.

Circuit Breaker Trips Frequently

If your air conditioner's circuit breaker trips frequently, it signifies an electrical problem with your system. You should call a qualified HVAC technician to inspect your system and make the necessary repairs.

The circuit breaker is the part that controls the power of your air conditioner. When it trips, it cuts off the power, preventing your system from overloading and causing an electrical fire.

Some reasons why your air conditioner’s circuit breaker may trip frequently include:

  • A short circuit in the system
  • A loose wire
  • A faulty capacitor
  • A bad compressor

Frosting on the Pipes

One of the most frustrating things that can happen during cold weather is finding your pipes have frozen over. It can easily lead to costly repairs or even a total replacement, depending on the severity of the damage. But there are a few things you can do to help prevent your pipes from freezing in the first place.

First, make sure your pipes are properly insulated. It is especially important for exposed pipes that run outside your home. You can find pre-slit foam pipe insulation at most hardware stores. Just cut it to size and slip it over the pipe.
