Signs of a Broken AC Compressor

At John Nugent & Sons, we want you to be on the lookout for four major warnings signs of a broken AC compressor.

Hard Starts

Does it seem that your AC unit isn’t starting as smoothly as it used to? Does the unit appear to jerk around—as if different parts are turning on at different times rather than working together? This means your unit is experiencing “hard starts,” which is usually the first warning sign of a broken AC compressor. Contact John Nugent & Sons to schedule AC compressor repair, a job that’s best left to an expert AC technician.

Odd Noises

Does your AC unit make unusual squealing, growling, or rattling noises? This can mean there is a compressor problem or some other issue that should be addressed as soon as possible.

No Cool Air

Does your AC unit’s blower fan and compressor work when the unit is turned on but no cool air is coming from the vents? This means there is a compressor problem—call us today for professional repair service.

Circuit Breaker Short Outs

If your AC unit’s circuit breaker keeps shorting, there is a strong chance the unit has a broken compressor that requires immediate repair.

If you witness any of these common warning signs of a broken AC compressor, we strongly recommend you contact us today to schedule AC compressor repair. Homes in Fairfax, Arlington, Centreville, Reston, and throughout Northern VA cannot afford to be without a fully functioning AC unit.
