3 Common Problems That Can Develop with Your AC’s Compressor

Posted by Kevin Carney on June 9th, 2015


Your air conditioning system is comprised of a number of components, but there are three key components that are responsible for much of the work: the condenser, the evaporator and the compressor. Of these three components, the compressor would be considered the most mechanical, as it is responsible for pressurizing the refrigerant in your system. Compressors do a great deal of work, and operating day in and out under great pressure can lead to repair issues, particularly if your air conditioning system hasn’t been properly maintained. Any repair issues that develop with your compressor should only be handled by a trained expert to ensure that the diagnosis is correct and that the repair is handled properly.
