For the motors that run the compressor, blower and fan of your air conditioning system, a capacitor serves to provide an added electrical impetus to start the motor and to sustain it during operation. The measure of a capacitor’s useful service lies in the charge that it can hold and deliver to the motor it is attached to. If the capacitor fails, the motor cannot engage or continue running, and although the motor receives electrical power, it strains to push forward but falters. Not only will a worn out capacitor prevent air conditioning from cooling your home, but it can lead to the deterioration and failure of the motor it is attached to.
Pledge: We will test your capacitors to ensure they hold sufficient charge.
