The Importance of Your HVAC Compressor

Your HVAC system is made up of several key components, one of which is the compressor. The compressor’s job is to circulate refrigerant through your HVAC system. This refrigerant is what helps to cool and heat your home, depending on the season. In this blog post, we’ll be taking a closer look at the compressor and its role in your HVAC system.

How does the compressor work?

The compressor is responsible for circulating refrigerant through your HVAC system. This refrigerant is what helps to cool your home in the summer and heat it in the winter. The compressor works by compressing the refrigerant gas. This compression raises the temperature of the refrigerant. The hot refrigerant then passes through a series of coils. As the hot gases pass through the coils, they cool down and turn back into a liquid. 


What are the different types of compressors?

There are two main types of compressors: scroll compressors and reciprocating compressors. Scroll compressors are more common in residential HVAC systems. Reciprocating compressors are more common in commercial HVAC systems. 


What are some signs that my compressor needs to be replaced?

If your home isn’t cooling or heating properly, it could be a sign that your compressor needs to be replaced. Other signs that your compressor needs to be replaced include strange noises coming from your HVAC system, increased energy bills, and leaking fluids. 


The compressor is an important part of your HVAC system. It’s responsible for circulating refrigerant through your system so that your home can be cooled or heated, depending on the season. If you think there might be something wrong with your compressor, it’s important to call a professional right away so that they can take a look at it and determine whether or not it needs to be replaced.
