One of the most common problems with air conditioners is a broken or malfunctioning compressor.

If your air conditioner compressor affects your cooling system, you can count on our professional technicians to skillfully repair or replace it. 

Why Your AC Needs a Functional Compressor

Central air conditioning and ductless mini-split units use refrigerant inside evaporator coils to extract heat from indoor air and disperse it into the outdoor environment. Refrigerant is a unique chemical because it absorbs heat from the air as a gas and releases heat as a liquid. 

AC compressors are essential for making the chemical change its state of matter to facilitate a successful heat transfer. It pressurizes the refrigerant inside the condenser coils, forcing the gas to turn into a liquid, heat up, and disperse warmth into the air outside. 

A lack of HVAC maintenance can cause your air conditioner’s compressor to degrade prematurely, though the component will experience some natural wear and tear. When that happens, turn to Blackstock Heating and Air for AC compressor replacement in Central Virginia. We use our years of HVAC experience and industry knowledge to deliver quick and effective services.

Warning Signs of Air Conditioner Compressor Trouble

In many cases, a bad compressor will exhibit warning signs before the entire air conditioning unit breaks down. Instead of replacing your whole system before you should, let our AC repair and replacement specialists inspect your equipment and determine if you would benefit from a new compressor.

Don’t wait to call our experienced HVAC contractors if you notice these common signs of AC compressor problems:

  • Compressor Doesn’t Turn On: Sometimes, the compressor won’t turn on when the thermostat triggers the AC due to overheating or electrical issues.
  • Poor AC Efficiency: If the compressor doesn’t work correctly, your air conditioner will compensate for the inefficiency by overworking itself. This leads to higher energy bills and premature wear.
  • Refrigerant Leaks: Refrigerant leaks usually follow an AC compressor malfunction. 
  • Uneven or Insufficient Cooling: Refrigerant can’t cool a home without the pressure it gets from the compressor, so your home will be unusually warm.
