A compressor is a major component that is responsible for pressurizing the refrigerant. When the refrigerant is pressurized, the refrigerant will then be able to absorb the heat from the air inside the home and later is released outside. When the compressor fails or begins to develop problems, the cooling system will fail to cool down the home. The compressor itself can develop a number of different problems, some of which can be easily repaired while others may require professional assistance. Hal Mechanical will share the systems of a failing compressor and what needs to be done to repair your cooling system.
What Can Cause Compressor Not to Start?
When the home begins to get warmer and warmer, you may discover the compressor is not starting. When the compressor fails to start up, it may be due to an electrical problem. The breakers may need to be replaced or tripped. There may also be a problem with the compressor’s motor, such as a failed capacitor. When the compressor doesn’t start up first check the breaker box and see if it has tripped or if there is any visible problems with the breaker. If the breaker isn’t the problem then you will need to contact a professional to inspect the compressor motor.
Why is My Vent Blowing Warm Air?
When you have warm air that blows out through the vents, the warm air isn’t cooling down. There can be a number of different reasons why the air conditioning system is blowing warm air. This is either a hiccup in the evaporator system, there may be a refrigerant leak, or the compressor has broken down. To determine why there is warm air blowing through the air vents, you will need to have the air conditioning system inspected.
Condenser Vibrates or Makes Noise
When the condenser begins to make loud noises and vibrates often, this is a sign of the compressor going out. The compressor will vibrate and make noise when it begins to fail. When a condenser vibrates it is because the compressor is experiencing something known as a “hard start.” A hard start is when there is a problem with the compressor turning on. To prevent further problems, turn off the air conditioning system and seek professional repair services. If the compressor is making noise such as a humming sound, this is a sign of an electrical problem. If the compressor is making a rattling noise, a piece has become loose and is rattling around inside the compressor.

When the compressor begins to develop symptoms of failure, you will want to seek out professional HVAC repairs. When a compressor can not cool down the air, not only is your home becoming hotter, but so is the compressor. When the compressor and other interior components fail, they will overheat which leads to additional problems with the cooling system. If you notice the compressor is developing signs of failure, seek out an HVAC repair service.
