We do not expect homeowners to be air conditioning experts. If you all were, after all, our business would be in serious trouble! That being said, we do think that it is in your best interest to have some idea of how your air conditioning system works. You may not be able to accurately diagnose problems that develop with your system, and you definitely should not try to resolve them on your own. You can, however, recognize that there are a lot of vital components in your system, and any issues should raise red flags.
Today we’ll be talking about just such vital components—the capacitors in your AC! Now, different systems may not have the same capacitors, some may serve double functions, etc. etc. For simplicity’s sake, we’ll focus on two specific types of capacitors today. These are the run capacitor and the start capacitor. If you should encounter any problems with your air conditioning capacitors, then you’ll definitely need to schedule prompt HVAC services in Calhoun.
