The Importance of Your Compressor

We’re an HVAC contractor, so air conditioning components are a very familiar part of our domain. We’re passionate about the work that we do, but we don’t like in a dream world. We don’t expect homeowners across the state to know each and every part of their air conditioning system and how it works. We really only need to you to know how to appropriately operate your air conditioning system—we’re here for all the rest.

One part of your air conditioning system that we do want to bring to your attention though is your compressor. Your air conditioner’s compressor is one of the most important parts of your air conditioner. If you ever need great air conditioning in Lake Oswego, OR make sure you contact our team. We know AC.

Why Your Compressor is Important

Your compressor is the unit within your air conditioning system that allows your system to work effectively and continually. You can think of your compressor as the heart of your air conditioning system. It’s the unit that’s responsible for giving energy to the refrigerant in your system that allows your air conditioning system to cool.

The compressor is in the outside unit of your air conditioning system. If your compressor is the heart of your air conditioning system, the refrigerant is the blood. Your compressor is in charge of places the gaseous refrigerant under high pressure. The refrigerant is then pumped through your system. After the refrigerant moves indoors it evaporates and cools down the inside of your home.

If your compressor starts to fail, the entire system is in trouble.

You Need Compressor Maintenance

You need to maintain your compressor to ensure that you air conditioning system has a long, healthy lifespan and the ability to cool your home. Now, there isn’t a specific service you can have just to service your compressor, but air conditioning maintenance services cover your compressor too. When you have one of our HVAC professionals come out to your home for a service appointment, they’ll check your compressor for any signs of impending damage and stop it in its tracks before it becomes a big issue.

If you wait too long and allow your air conditioning compressor to breakdown you’ll have to undergo a very expensive and extensive replacement process. Help your compressor help you by choosing the right team to service your home.
