Leaking Dielectric Fluid

Here is another benefit of preventative maintenance. This compressor run capacitor was discovered while performing a routine preventative maintenance inspection on a roof top package heat pump. This is important because once the integrity of the run capacitor is compromised as a result of the fluid leakage, the compressor will compensate for the lack of proper capacitance by drawing excessive amperage. This can result in a compressor failure which is far more costly and inconvenient than the replacement of a smaller component like a run capacitor. The moral of the story….Don’t neglect your AC & Heating systems. Having a licensed HVAC contractor inspect them today can save you big time expenses tomorrow. Call Klee’s Climate Control to schedule your preventative maintenance inspection. Don’t be stuck out in the cold.
