One of the first things to go bad on an AC unit is the condensor fan motor. This is a fan that has to work especially hard, condensors are where the largest amount of physical work has to be put into the system, using force to compress coolant. Other condensors also work to press moisture, carrying heat, out of air as well in a dehumidification process.
Replacing these fans should be handled by a professional, but having one of them do a fan replacement rather than an entire overhaul of the AC or replacement of the AC is definitely going to be cheaper. For most experienced HVAC specialists, replacing an AC condensor fan motor isn’t that difficult, and is a pretty routine task. It will be free, of course, but it won’t be the most expensive thing they have to do, as they do a lot of these fairly quickly thus making it profitable to charge less for this service. Of course, get quotes from various services before committing, it’s always good to shop around.
One way to save money on an AC condensor fan motor or any condensor fan motor for that matter is to shop online. Sure, the professionals can probably supply the part for an extra cost, but you save money by purchasing it yourself and then just using their service to install it. Honestly, even when marking things up, they don’t make much out of supplying the parts, so they’re not going to mind you having the park there for them to just install.
Shopping online saves money the same way not using brick-and-mortar for various other things does. It goes directly from the manufacturer to you with an online portal acting as simply a way to order it from the manufacturer while keeping the prices low and things flowing easily. This portal also allows the manufacturers to market, marketing being something that they had no real practical way to do outside of niche periodicals until that time.
Gone is the overhead of distribution warehouses, gone is the tedium of ordering through catalogs or over the phone. Shopping for a better product is easier to do, and everybody stands to benefit. This will get you a lot longer life out of your AC unit, and as spring is just around the corner, things are going to start to get hot around the world. It’s already hot and Australia right now, of course, and if your AC isn’t performing properly, it might be time to look at your condensor fan motor and see if that’s where the performance is being lost.
Shopping online for an AC condensor fan motor or general condensor fan motor will save you a ton of money not only in acquiring the part and having it installed, but putting off having to buy more, newer equipment, something that drains your wallet absolutely dry. We are all trying to save money as best we can, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay comfortable, right?
