AC Compressor Needs Repair

You want to have your compressor replaced right away.
Clogged Home AC Condenser
When you look on the outside of your house there is a large unit that is out there. This is called your condenser and it can become dirty and clogged. The condenser is outside which means it can be covered in dirt, dust and other debris. The problem is that this is needed to move the heated air from the area so that the cooled air can be sent in the house. When the condenser is dirty it will cause the unit to not cool the home. You want to have your condenser cleaned and maintained by a professional. This is often the reason that the unit is not cooling the house properly.
