Your air conditioner capacitor is the device that provides your unit with the initial power boost it needs to cycle on. It also supplies power to the AC that allows the unit to complete a cooling cycle. Some signs that your capacitor may not be working include:
- The air conditioner will either not turn on or take a while to start after you turn it on.
- The unit is not blowing cold air.
- There is a humming noise coming from the AC.
- The unit keeps shutting down.
On average, you can expect your AC unit to last between 10 – 15 years. To prolong the life of your unit, make sure to:
- Have it serviced regularly – Maintenance service has been shown to not only help central air conditioning systems last longer, but also run more efficiently and ward off future breakdowns.
- Run it reasonably – Our Texas summers can be brutal. However, if the temperature hits over a hundred degrees outside, trying to cool your home to 60 degrees will put undue stress on the unit and shorten its working life.
- Change filters on time – Changing the air filters in your home helps your AC run more smoothly by allowing air to circulate easier. New air filters also collect more dust and dirt that will prevent extra debris from getting into the system.

Max came to our house on a Saturday and quickly diagnosed the the problem. Options and prices were given to do a temporary repair verses replacement of the entire system. The installation team arrived promptly as scheduled. Technicians paid attention to every detail of the job and thoroughly cleaned their work areas when finished. After final testing, Ryan went over each process that they had performed and gave an explanation of the warranty, system operation and maintenance requirements. Overall experience was excellent and I highly recommend Garner Heating & Air Conditioning.

The tech changed a start capacitor. Should have been a nominal $150-$200 repair. Took him 5 minutes tops as I had removed access panel already. Before he started the 5 minute changeout, he presented me with 5 options ranging as high as nearly $700 for “extras” like repairing burned wires (seriously? an extra?) and etc. Top (his recommended) price was nearly $700. My experience was overall good but only because I’m an educated buyer. I did not appreciate the blatant upsell attempt. You all have been better than that before now.
Performed Deluxe tune-up on one of the two systems (5-ton first floor). Found the air handler drain pan to be dirty and outdoor voltage enhancement system under tolerance. Presented options for cleaning and customer has chosen to move forward with recommended cleaning. Completed cleaning of air handler and replaced voltage enhancement system. Checked system after repairs and everything is operational at this time.
When I arrived, I found the primary drain line to be backed up and causing the safety overflow switch to trip. I presented the customer with her options and she chose to have it repaired at the bronze level at this time. After performing the bronze level repair everything is draining and working properly at this time. I also spoke with the customer about having a 4-inch media air cleaner installed so she does not have to get up on ladders to change her 1-inch filter every month. She declined at this time but said she would think it over and reach back out when ready.
Installed 24x25 Carrier, 4 inch media cabinet and filter. Completed QC.

Performed heating tune-up on a 4-ton heat pump system. Found safety switch damaged and I have completed the repairs.
When I arrived and performed the diagnostic, I found that the ignition and combustion system had completely failed and was not bringing the furnace on. I presented the customer with her options and she chose to go ahead and have it replaced at the silver level. After performing the silver level repair everything is coming on and working at this time.
Performed platinum level electrical repair on heat pump system in attic (on roof). Fixed electrical wiring connections and washed-out evaporator coil. Sprayed Viper cleaner in drain pan and cleaned cabinet. Performed voltage enhancement system replacement and cleaned out electrical cabinet. Sprayed JS-685 ant deterrent around openings and washed outside condenser. Preformed safety testing and checked system operation in each mode. System working at this time.
After performing the diagnostic, I found the furnace control board to have completely failed by not sending the signal through to turn on the furnace. I presented the customer with her options and she chose to have it replaced at the basic level at this time. I ordered the part, and we will be coming back out tomorrow to install the furnace control board.
Installed line set with insulated PVC drain and control wiring. Equipment ready to be installed once ground is smoothed and sheetrock finished.
Found Carrier heat pump system offline due to drain issue. Drain treatment performed and system back up and cooling. All other values recorded. There was no charge for this visit, but if further issues persist, the customer knows we will need to discuss a more permanent repair.
Performed maintenance on an American Standard 3.5-ton heat pump. Drain treatment performed and 20x30x1 filter changed/dated. Outdoor unit has been washed off. Refrigerant charge and electrical components verified in spec. System up and cooling. Customer has renewed their maintenance for another year.
Found that the system is cooling properly at this time. Based on the two visits I’ve made this summer, it may be time to consider supplemental air conditioning for these days over 100 degrees. The system is designed for max temps 98-99 degrees outside. A system should not be designed for 105+ because most of the year it will be over-sized and cause other problems. No charge for today's visit.
Found voltage enhancement system had failed on a system that I worked on a year ago. We never gave them a safety inspection. And the part is covered under our warranty. System is working now that I changed the voltage enhancement system.
Found the capacitor for the fan motor had a burnt wire and terminal on top. Customer chose the Bronze option for repair. I installed one 80/10 capacitor to manufacture specs. I then check the system in cool. I found that the system was low on R410-A refrigerant. The high side refrigerant cap was missing when I got here. It is possible that is the reason for the refrigerant leak. I charged the system and it is cooling at this time.
Install new Carrier heat pump system in upstairs attic. Add new drain pan with supply and return plenums. Install new Ecobee thermostat and rebuilt primary drain with in-place safety switches. Install new filter drier and pressure test system for extensive leak check. Pull deep vacuum and charged to factory specs.
I found the drain line to be completely clogged. I give the customer his options and he chooses to have it cleared at the basic option at this time. After clearing and treating the drain I perform a system inspection, and everything is coming on and working at this time. See attached quote for maintenance price and info.
I found the voltage enhancer to be completely depleted. I gave the customer his options and he chose to have the parts replace at the platinum level at this time. After replacing the voltage enhancer, voltage distributor and installing a new start assist everything is coming on and working at this time. The temperature is 91 degrees inside the house and I have a Delta T of 20 degrees from return to supply 88 and 68. I inform the customer that it will take all day before it starts to cool the house down with how hot it is inside as well as outside.
