What Is An AC Compressor?

A compressor is a device that helps to circulate refrigerant through an air conditioning system. The refrigerant is responsible for cooling the air, and the compressor ensures that it flows evenly throughout the system. The compressor must be filled with a certain amount of oil to work correctly. It helps to lubricate the components and prevents them from overheating. The compressor is typically located near the front of the vehicle, and it is usually attached to the engine via a series of belts. The belts turn the compressor as the engine runs, which circulates the refrigerant. Here are some signs that the AC compressor is not working correctly.

HEARING STRANGE NOISES FROM THE AC UNIT

If you hear strange noises coming from the AC unit, it could signify that the compressor is not working correctly. The most common noise is a squealing sound. It can be caused by a loose belt or needs to be replaced. Another common noise is a grinding sound. It can indicate that the bearings in the compressor are failing. If you hear any strange noises, it's best to call a professional to inspect the unit and determine the cause.

AC UNIT LEAKING FLUID

The compressor is likely damaged if you notice fluid leaking from the AC unit. The most common type of fluid that leaks from an AC unit is oil. It can be a sign that the bearings in the compressor are failing. Also, it can leak if there is a crack in the compressor. Furthermore, if the AC unit is leaking, it will not be able to cool the air properly. 

HIGH ELECTRIC BILL

A high electric bill is one of the most common signs that your AC unit is not working efficiently. If your compressor is not working correctly, it will have to work harder to cool the air. It will cause your electric bill to increase. Also, if you notice that your AC unit is running more than usual, this could be another sign that the compressor is not working correctly.

OUTDOOR AC UNIT IS OVERHEATING

If you notice that the outdoor AC unit is overheating, it could be a sign of a problem with the compressor. The compressor is responsible for circulating refrigerant through the system. If the compressor is not working correctly, the refrigerant will not flow evenly, and this can cause the outdoor unit to overheat. It can damage the unit if the problem is not fixed. 

If you notice any of these signs, it’s best to call a professional to inspect your AC unit and determine the cause. Give us a call at The Plumbing & Air Service Co in Kernersville, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and Jamestown, NC, and let us help you keep your AC unit running.
