AC Condenser Services in Westwood, MA
Your condenser is one of three primary parts in your AC. The condenser is made up of a series of coils, located inside the outdoor unit. A fan blows across these coils, dissipating the heat from the refrigerant within them and converting this refrigerant back into a liquid. The refrigerant then travels back inside the unit to start the circulation process all over again
Suburban HVAC has worked on just about every AC on the market, and we practically know the Westwood, MA units by heart. We want you to know that if your AC condenser fails, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace your entire AC!
The Role of AC Condensers (and What Can Go Wrong)
The AC condenser is one of the primary elements needed to get the hot air from your home outside where it belongs, so the refrigerant can do its work and keep your home cool and comfortable. There are a few common culprits when an AC compressor fails, including:
- Dirty coils can cause unwanted insulation that traps the heat the condenser is trying to release
- Bent coils can block airflow and create unwanted pressure buildup/heat retention
- A refrigerant leak can cause a chemical imbalance in the system
- A problem with the blades or wiring can cause the condenser fan to fail
