HOW DO I REPLACE AN HVAC CAPACITOR?
Determining the right HVAC capacitor can be tricky when there are several options available. To find the right replacement HVAC capacitors, start by matching the capacitor to the make and model of your air conditioner. If you decide to replace the capacitor yourself, make sure to power down the air conditioner before starting any fixes. Even with the air conditioner turned off, the HVAC fan capacitors still have energy stored inside. Be sure to discharge it to prevent any accidents. If you don't feel comfortable replacing the HVAC capacitor yourself, there are plenty of professionals out there with experience in HVAC repair.
