3 Common Electrical Issues That Can Develop with Your AC

It’s not a secret that your whole home air conditioning system uses electricity to run, so it shouldn’t be any surprise that your system may develop repairs that are electrical in nature. It’s never a good idea to try and repair your own AC, and this is especially true when it comes to repairing electrical problems with your air conditioner. The cooling experts at Comfort Flow Heating can manage any type of repair you may have, so if you suspect you may have an electrical issue with your AC system in Eugene, OR, call us today!

3 Types of Electrical Issues

Here are the most common electrical problems our experts see with air conditioning systems:

Issue with Wiring

The wires in your AC system can be prone to fraying and corroding, especially if they are exposed to the outdoor elements. Wires can be easily replaced, but until they are, corrosion and fraying will affect their ability to deliver electricity correctly.

Problems with Capacitors

Capacitors are used in a number of air conditioning systems to help the different motors in the system both start and run. As such, there are two kinds of capacitors: start and run. When either of these capacitors begins to malfunction, due to age or damage, the motors to which they are attached will be affected.

Overloading Circuit Breaker

Your air conditioning system draws enough power that it needs to have its own circuit breaker in your home’s electrical panel. If you are finding that your AC’s circuit breaker keeps tripping, it needs to be checked by a professional. There are typically two reasons for a tripping circuit breaker: first, the AC is drawing too much power; second, the breaker is faulty.
