Based on experience, some of the most common AC problems that Glendale residents encounter have to do with the following:
The capacitor is responsible for storing the extra electrical energy needed to help start the compressor and condenser fan motors. If the condenser fan or compressor of your AC unit has difficulty starting up, stutters when you turn it on, or only warm air is coming out, your capacitor may be malfunctioning.
One way to tell if you’re dealing with a capacitor problem is by checking the part itself. If the capacitor bulged out or the terminals and connectors look rusty, then it may be time to have them replaced. Most capacitor problems are caused by wear and tear. Thankfully, it’s very easy to swap them out for new ones and they won’t cause any serious damage to your AC unit if you catch the problem soon enough. Emergency Air Heating and Cooling offers quick and effective solutions to capacitor AC repair in Glendale.
The contractor controls the electrical flow to all parts of the AC unit. Thus, when the contractor goes bad, your air conditioner loses its ability to efficiently cool the space. Worse, the unit may even continue running even when the thermostat is turned off!
A malfunctioning contractor tends to show physical signs of deterioration, or what is also known as pitting. This happens when the contractor experiences extreme heat and voltage, causing it to stick and deliver a continuous flow of electricity to the AC unit. Other culprits of AC contractor malfunction are wire insulation breakdown and pests/debris that blocked electrical connections. The good news is that contractor problems are repairable. Our technicians at Emergency Air Heating and Cooling can fix the problem in almost no time at all!
The Condenser Fan Motor
The condenser fan motor removes the heat from inside the house or building and blows it out of the unit. A broken condenser fan motor cannot efficiently remove and release heat. This causes a heat build-up within the unit that could probably damage the compressor, too. If you see signs of rusting on the sides of your AC, there is grease getting out, and fan blades aren’t rotating even if the unit is turned on, you may have a condenser fan motor problem on your hands.
