Best Ways to Avoid a Failed Compressor in Your Air Conditioner

April 10th, 2023

What is the essential component of your home’s air conditioning system? Okay, this is a bit of a trick question, because there are multiple components in an AC that are essential for it to function properly. But there’s one that deserves the “essential” title more than the others: the compressor. 

This is the device that places refrigerant under pressure so it will circulate through the rest of the system and go through the process of heat exchange. If it fails, it usually means the whole air conditioning system needs a replacement. The compressor is a pricy component, and it’s often not worth it to replace just the compressor.

So, if possible, you want to avoid a dead compressor in your AC. How can you do that? We have some advice that will help you keep your air conditioner around for as long as possible thanks to a healthy compressor.
