All about your compressor

  • Your AC unit compressor is a vital part of keeping a comfortable temperature in your home.
  • The compressor changes refrigerant into hot gas, making the refrigerant move between the indoor and outdoor coils. This is what cools the inside of your home.
  • The compressor is the heart of your unit, so replacing it can be costly.
  • On average a compressor costs about $1200 for the parts. In addition to the cost of parts, you will need to consider labor cost.
  • Depending on the age of your unit, and the age of certain parts, replacement or a new unit install is recommended. A reliable, professional AC company can help you make the right decision.
