Is Your AC Compressor in Trouble? Here’s How to Tell!

Hello to all our ProMag Energy Group AC & Heating friends! When your air conditioner starts acting up, the culprit might be the heart of the system – the compressor. Let’s dive into some tell-tale signs that your AC compressor could be waving a little white flag.

Strange Noises

Starting off, if your AC is making more noise than a band of garage rockers, it’s time to listen up. A healthy compressor hums along quietly. Rattling, banging, or screeching? Not so much. These sounds can signal that the compressor is having a hard time, and it’s calling out for help.

Warm Air

Next up, is your AC blowing out air that’s as warm as a summer breeze? Cool air is the AC’s job, so when it starts feeling like a heater, the compressor may be struggling.

Hard Starts

An AC should start up smoothly, like a car engine. If it stutters or starts and stops (we call it ‘hard starting’), imagine your compressor is saying, “I’m trying, but this is tough!”

Tripping Circuit Breaker

If your AC trips the circuit breaker more often than you flip your pillow to the cool side, it’s a sign. Your compressor could be overheating and drawing too much power, causing your system to say “nope” and cut off.

Reduced Airflow

When your AC is on, but the air trickles out like a shy stream, we might be looking at a compressor that’s losing its punch.
