Air conditioners are a must-have for comfortable city living, especially if you live in the hot bustling areas of metro Phoenix. Without a fully-functional AC system, home and commercial spaces tend to become very uncomfortable, even more so during summer when the heat becomes extreme.
Around here, AC units are essential to daily living, that’s why you need to have them checked as soon as you notice something wrong with them. A minor issue can turn into a big problem if ignored for too long.
There could be a long list of potential reasons why your air conditioning system isn’t functioning as well as it used to. But whatever the reason may be, it’s always better to ask a professional to fix the problem rather than tinkering with it on your own.

The capacitor is in charge of storing all excess electronic energy within the AC system. This extra energy helps to jumpstart the compressor motor and the condenser fan motor.
For the capacitor to function properly, the electronic energy has to stay in a certain range. If it falls outside of the ideal 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 definitely time to do so.
Another sign that your capacitor is not working may be if the terminals and spade connectors are completely rusted and not making good contact.
To check whether or not your AC has a capacitor problem, run it and observe if the capacitor or condenser fan turns on. If it is not, and warm air is blowing out, you’re most likely dealing with a capacitor problem.
Capacitor issues are a relatively easy fix. Emergency Air offers quick and effective solutions to capacitor AC repair in Phoenix.
A common issue with air conditioning units is the contractor, which is a switch that turns the AC unit on and off. The contractor is in charge of maintaining a comfortable temperature in the room. When you turn on the AC and increase the thermostat, the compressor and the condenser fan motor are powered up.
Contactors often fail due to electrical or mechanical issues, consequently causing the entire unit to malfunction. One way to tell if you’re dealing with a capacitor problem is by checking for signs of deterioration. A damaged capacitor exhibits pitting, where the metals stick together due to extreme heat and voltage. Other causes of AC contactor malfunction are wire insulation breakdown and pests/debris that blocked electrical connection.
An experienced technician can replace a worn out or broken capacitor within an hour. If you think your AC might be experiencing a capacitor problem, ask the professionals at Emergency Air for help right away to prevent further damage on the unit.
The purpose of this motor is to expel all of the heat that your AC unit collects from inside of your home. Most condenser fan motor problems are caused by grease build-up around the shaft. Seeing grease anywhere around the AC unit could mean you have a condenser fan motor problem on your hands.
Without a properly working condenser fan motor, your air conditioner cannot effectively release the heat from your home. This will cause the heat to build-up inside of the condenser and can cause major damage to the entire AC unit. Left untreated, the issue can result in the complete destruction of your air conditioning system.
To identify a condenser fan motor problem, check your AC to see if the fan blades are rotating. If not, reach out to us at Emergency Air and we’ll take care of it for you!
Should you detect any of these tell-tale signs on your air conditioning unit, set a checkup schedule with Emergency Air as soon as possible. Staying on top of the problem at hand will save you from unnecessary and costly repairs in the future.
