When your Air Conditioning unit suddenly starts blowing hot air, it could be an indication that you have some sort of a problem. But before calling your local HVAC repairman, you can try to perform your own AC unit fan motor replacement instead. You can save money on the cost of an AC unit motor replacement without having to wait days or weeks for the technician to come and look at the problem.
The kind of AC conditioner
One thing you will want to consider is the kind of AC conditioner you have. The size and style of the fan will affect the repair costs as well. A blower fan is better for cooling large areas, such as whole buildings or rooms, where the unit is located. An AC system’s fan is usually placed in the ceiling of the room it is intended to cool. Blower units are usually made of copper or aluminum and cannot be repaired effectively by any do-it-yourselfer, unless all the moving parts are accounted for.
Blower fans are available in both vertical and horizontal styles. The vertical design is more efficient at cooling an area because they have a wider field of cooling. This means that a larger area will need to be cooled. However, horizontal designs are cheaper because they have smaller fans which are less efficient at cooling an area.
An AC unit can also be replaced with a heat pump. The heat pump comes with ductwork and ductless systems, and they are often more affordable than the air conditioners. A heat pump works by circulating cold air through a heated system. The heated system turns on as the air passes through the heat pump’s heat exchange unit, which immediately warms the water in the swimming pool or hot tub.
Replacement AC unit fan motor replacement
Replacement AC units can also be replaced with a compressor. A compressor is similar to a furnace in the way it operates, but it does not require oil or gas to operate. A compressor replaces a furnace in the process by blowing warm air through the unit and pumping cool liquid gas out into the air conditioner air chamber. If your AC unit is breaking down, you should call a local HVAC contractor as soon as possible to determine the problem.
There are many HVAC contractors in your local area who are qualified to work with heating and cooling systems. Contact one of them today and ask about AC unit and compressor replacement services. A qualified contractor can tell you if your heating or cooling system keeps turning on or off, and if the components of your heating or cooling system are going bad.
