Will Short Circuits Affect Air Conditioner? Tempe AC Repair

Emergency AC Repair

Is it possible for a power loss to impact your air conditioner? An air conditioner or furnace and any other device or appliance that uses electricity can be damaged by a power surge. Replacing one, unlike other gadgets, can be pricey.

So, if you experience any power outages, brownouts, or blackouts, call a local Tempe AC repair provider.

Circuit breakers control the indoor and exterior components of your central air conditioning system. Each element has its circuit breaker; one is more likely to have tripped than the other. If you're unsure, have your air conditioner inspected by Rescue One Air.


Dead Capacitors Need Tempe AC Repair Service

A capacitor starts the compressor of an air conditioner. When the capacitor fails due to power surges, the compressor will not restart until the power is restored.

As a result, the outdoor unit does not usually exchange heat, although the indoor unit does. In addition, the heat exchange procedure isn't finished during the cooling cycle; thus, the air conditioner isn't blowing cool air.

By peering into the external device, which resembles a canister on top of the compressor, you can see the state of the capacitor. If the capacitor has blown, the top bulges or leaks oily material. This issue would necessitate the assistance of a licensed HVAC technician.


Power Outage Stops AC Unit Cooling

Your air conditioner's compressor could fail due to a power surge. Because there is no cool air when the compressor fails, there is no heat exchange. Instead, warm air escapes because the compressor fails to circulate refrigerant throughout the device.

The compressor will be evaluated by Rescue One Air's trusted AC expert, who will tell you if the power outage has harmed it. If the compressor failed, the machine would require a compressor replacement.
