Buckeye AC Systems are Subject to Experiencing These Issues:
One issue that air conditioning systems are likely to experience is the failure of its capacitor. The capacitor is in charge of storing all excess electronic energy within your AC system. This extra energy helps to jumpstart the compressor motor and the condenser fan motor. The capacitor must stay in a certain range to function properly. If it falls outside of this range, issues are likely to occur.
Key signs will indicate whether your capacitor is operating efficiently. The first of these signs is the age of your air conditioning unit. If your air conditioner is over 5 to 7 years of age and you have not yet replaced the capacitor, it is time to. To decide if this is the issue, run your AC and see if the capacitor or condenser fan turns on. If not, and warm air is blowing out, this is most likely the problem. Another sign that your capacitor is not working maybe that the terminals and spade connectors are completely rusted. Also, if they are not making good contact, it is surely a problem with the capacitor.
Another common issue with air conditioning units is the contractor. This is a switch that turns the AC unit on and off. The contractor is in charge of maintaining a comfortable temperature for you in your home. When turning your AC on, and cooling your house, the compressor is powered up and the condenser fan motor turns on. Issues often occur during this process, such as the failure of the contractor.
This failure can be either electrical or mechanical and can cause your entire unit to experience a malfunction. Fortunately, Emergency Air is fully capable of resolving any issue involving the contractor.
The Condenser Fan Motor
If your AC unit is functioning improperly, this may be due to the failure of the condenser fan motor. The purpose of this motor is to expel all of the heat that your AC unit collects from inside your home. The most common cause of this can be the buildup of grease around the shaft of the condenser fan motor. Checking if there is any grease or rust around the unit is the best way to identify whether or not this is the problem. If your condenser fan motor is working properly there should be no appearance of grease around the unit.
Without a properly working condenser fan motor, heat will not be released from your home. Instead, the heat will build up inside of the condenser which can cause major damage to the AC unit. If left untreated, this can destroy your air conditioning system, and you will have to replace it. To prevent this from happening, check your AC to see if the fan blades are rotating. If not, reach out to us at Emergency Air to take care of it! You must look to a professional to replace the condenser motor fan rather than doing it yourself. This process requires special tools and serious skills to be performed correctly. The technicians at Emergency Air are capable of doing this quickly and correctly.
