Although the capacitor is one of the smallest and most inexpensive parts on an air conditioner or heat pump that can be warranted, when it goes down the consequences can be severe. If you have a failed capacitor, it is likely that your compressor or condenser fan motor will not start. This means that the system will completely lose its ability to cool or heat the home. This is no need to be discouraged. The technicians at Melco HVAC Services of Orlando will have your Orlando air conditioning system up and working in less than an hour. With a few simple tests, our certified technicians will be able to determine if the capacitor has failed and replace it with one from their fully-stocked service vehicle. A capacitor failure can often be prevented with an annual maintenance agreement. Because capacitors are exposed to the elements, they will corrode and fail. A capacitor with a high probability of failure can easily be spotted during the tune-up and replaced at a fraction of the cost if it were a demand service call in the middle of summer.
