Compressor Replacement Services

Your AC compressor plays an essential role in keeping your home cool.

However, like any component of an air conditioning system, it can stop working over time. If this happens, our experts at Perfect Home Services will replace yours. We’ll also gladly answer any questions you may have about the topic, addressing issues like the AC compressor replacement cost, signs it’s stopped working, and related topics.

Signs You Need To Replace Your HVAC Compressor

Unless you have experience working in this industry, odds are good you may not always know what to look out for to determine if a compressor has failed.

That’s why we’d like to offer the following warning signs to pay attention to. If you notice any of these problems, it may be time to replace your air conditioner compressor.

Our team will take a closer look to determine the best course of action.

Rattling Noises

Pay attention to any sounds you hear when you turn on your air conditioning system.

Do you notice any rattling, ticking, or chattering noises?

If so, it could indicate a failing HVAC compressor. When the electrical relay switch that allows the compressor to turn on wears down, the system struggles to activate, resulting in this sound.


Regularly inspect the area around your air conditioning system for any signs of moisture or leaks.

This could indicate the compressor is leaking refrigerant. Because exposure to refrigerant can pose a health risk, contact a professional right away to have them take a closer look.

Reduced Airflow

From time to time, check the AC vents to see how strong the airflow from them is. The compressor is responsible for generating the cool air. When it starts to fail, it no longer generates the same amount of air. As a result, the airflow from the vents will seem weaker it normally might.

The AC Compressor Replacement Process

The process of replacing your HVAC compressor will vary depending on your situation.

This is not a DIY task, as replacing it can be a very complicated process, and a potentially dangerous one if you’re exposed to any refrigerant.

Professionals will typically follow these essential steps:

Determining the Cause

An air conditioner compressor may fail for several reasons.

An expert technician will diagnose the problem, as it may develop again if it’s not directly addressed. The compressor itself may simply fail due to the age of the component, but it’s also possible that damage within the overall system contributed to its failure.

Choosing a Replacement

Often, the HVAC system manufacturer will provide specific recommendations for choosing a replacement compressor. A professional can help you choose a new one that meets the manufacturer’s standards while also fitting your budget.

Once they know what type of compressor they’ll be installing, they’ll know what kinds of tools to use for the job.

Replacing the Compressor

This stage in the process is fairly complicated. The technicians must shut off the power, remove the old compressor, remove other components like filter drier cores and check valves (this isn’t always necessary), and insert the new unit into the system so that it connects seamlessly.

Poor installation could result in future HVAC compressor problems.
