Charleston AC Compressor Repair and Replacement


Failing air conditioning compressors are unfortunately quite common. Compressors have the tough job of compressing cool, low pressure gas into hot, high pressure gas. This is one step in the complex multi-step cooling process, and if it fails, the entire air conditioning unit will fail.

At LimRic Air Conditioning, our experts will help to troubleshoot and accommodate all of your air conditioning problems. The first step is in repair or replacing an air conditioning compressor is learning the specific problem based on the type of unique air conditioning system you have.

There are a variety of differing compressors:

  • Rotary Compressor: Typically found in window units.
  • Reciprocating Compressor: Often found in split air conditioning systems.
  • Scroll Compressor: Most common in higher efficiency air conditioning units
  • Variable Speed Compressors (or Inverter Drives): Typically, the most expensive and the most top of the line with the highest efficiency.
