When people start turning on their air conditioners for the first time, we get plenty of calls from customers telling us that their air conditioner is not working. Most of the calls we get are for a common repair: a failed capacitor, though customers aren’t often aware that this is the problem. So then the question becomes, can you use your air conditioner despite a bad capacitor?

The simple answer is “No.”

There are two types of capacitors–the start capacitor that signals the AC motors to start up, and the run capacitor that keeps those motors running through each cooling cycle.

If your HVAC system is giving you trouble, it is definitely time for you to call in our professionals for air conditioning repair in Toledo, OH. We’ll determine if a capacitor is to blame, and make the necessary repairs. In the meantime, read on to learn more about this component and its importance to the functionality of your air conditioner!

The short answer to this is, “yes!” or rather, “yes of course!” But don’t worry, we’re going to elaborate.

Prepping for the warmer months that summer brings is not exclusive to homeowners. Business owners have to think of this too. Caring for your commercial air conditioner (and heater, in the winter) is essential to caring for the occupants of your commercial space, whether it’s employees, tenants, guests, or clients. The last thing you need this summer or any summer is a severe business interruption because your commercial HVAC system suddenly broke down when it could have been prevented.

Maintenance is essential to comfort, but it’s also important for protecting your HVAC equipment and sensitive equipment from overheating. As a homeowner, you only need to worry about a handful of people in your home, if that. A breakdown may only be a minor inconvenience and it’s easy to get our residential HVAC repair professionals out for a quick fix.

But when you own or run a commercial setting, it’s a different story. Read on to learn more about the importance of commercial HVAC maintenance.
