I live in Rosenberg and last night we had bad storms and it felt like lightning was right out my front door, and now my ac unit that runs the upstairs won’t work. The downstairs unit works. I checked the breakers and they are ok, could a power surge blow my unit?
Tom: I bet you anything it popped his capacitor. You love those capacitors, don’t you Charlie?
Charlie: I love those capacitors.
Tom: Yeah, it’s a little start around the motor. You can get a little surge in there, especially with lightning, and you have contactors, you have capacitors, and then that’s pretty much it. If you’ve got power going to the unit and that’s the first thing your technician will check. I bet you anything your capacitor needs to be replaced. Not a big deal.
