It’s well-known that regular maintenance on your AC unit can increase its life span and efficiency, but it’s also a great way to identify existing problems. Our Production Manager Keith Hill looks at a common issue in AC units: the contactor.
The contactor can be compared to the ignition circuit of a vehicle; it's a small electrical relay that starts or stops your compressor after a small signal is received from the thermostat.
As he explains in the video, if the contactor is pitted, it will make your unit much less efficient and can lead to your unit not working at all until it is fixed or replaced.
At Yarbrough and Sons, we highly recommend regular maintenance visits through our Maintenance Membership to keep your home efficient and comfortable throughout the year. If your system is having issues, give us a call today!
