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.

Do you suspect a bad AC capacitor? Garner Heating & Air Conditioning can help! We provide accurate and reliable AC repair services at competitive prices. Contact us today to learn more!

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.

To learn more, contact the experts at Garner Heating & Air Conditioning today! We offer professional AC installation services guaranteed to keep you and your family cool for years to come.

On average, the repair cost to replace an AC capacitor runs around $200 – $300 for a professional technician to complete. You can expect the job to take between 1 – 2 hours.

Great Experience




Review of Garner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

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.


Great service.




Review of Garner Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

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.

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.

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.

Replace a failed motor on Carrier furnace. Install a new voltage enhancement unit on the condenser. Enlarge the return air to accommodate more air through the system. I also spoke to Chris about adding turning vanes to his return air to facilitate a smoother flow of air and decrease turbulence. System is working at end of service.
