Does your central air conditioning system only blow out warm air? Does it trip the circuit breaker or shake violently when you try to turn it on? Do you hear banging or similar noises when you turn it on or while it’s running? Don’t ignore these clear signs of trouble! All of these are indications that your AC compressor may be failing or has already failed. With so many California days blessed by the hot sun, the last thing you need is a failing air conditioning compressor. Without that, your system can’t cool your home or business.

Your air conditioning compressor is one of two main parts that reside in the outside unit of your system, the other being the condenser. The compressor essentially does what its name suggests; it takes gaseous refrigerant, which at this point has collected heat from inside your home, and squeezes it into a high-pressure, high-temperature gas, which then enters the condenser. In the process of cooling your structure, the compression step is one of the most important. The gaseous refrigerant must reach a temperature above the temperature of the air outside in order to release the heat it collected from inside your home or commercial building.
