Beware These Common End of Season Air Conditioner Issues

Air Conditioning

As hard as it may be to believe at the moment, the cooling season will be over in just a couple short months. In the meantime, we have plenty of days of soaring temperatures left to contend with. Hopefully, your air conditioner has served you well this summer and you haven’t had any huge emergencies.

However, the end of summer is usually when air conditioners are likely to suffer breakdowns. They may be constructed to stand up to high temperatures and many years of use, but they can only take so much—particularly without regular maintenance. If your air conditioning system is aging or hasn’t had professional maintenance in a while, then you’ll definitely want to be aware of some of the common end of season AC issues you may have to deal with.

Power Outages

We don’t typically have large-scale power outages in this part of the country this time of year. However the excess stress placed on your AC due to intense temperatures certainly can cause a circuit breaker to pop. As a result, you may lose power for a few hours, which means you’ll be without air conditioning during that time.

Failed Capacitors

Capacitors are the electronic components responsible for transferring electrical charges to the numerous motors in your air conditioning system. Intense heat shortens the lifespan of your capacitors, and after a long, hot summer it may only take a day of soaring temperatures for a capacitor to fail.

Burned-Out Motors

There is a good amount of stress placed on your air conditioning motors during the summer. Eventually, this can lead to your motors burning out. This is particularly true if your air conditioning system is over a decade old and has not be appropriately maintained.

He did an amazing job keeping me informed and I would hire him again if needed... Shawn you are wonderfully amazing. Thank you so much for your time!


Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.


When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
