Importance of Capacitors in Electronic Devices.
The capacitor was originally known as a condenser. A capacitor is a device that stores electrical energy. It consists of two conductors in close proximity that are insulated from each other. Capacitors have many useful applications. For example, in a digital computer circuit the capacitor prevents memory / data loss during a temporary loss of electrical power. Capacitors also help prevent damage to delicate electronic components during electrical power surges.
A capacitor is similar to a battery because it stores electric energy. The Air Conditioner Capacitor is one of the most important components of your entire HVAC system. The main role of an air conditioner capacitor is to ensure a continuous supply of power so that the air conditioner runs smoothly when their are temporary power fluctuations. The air conditioner capacitor also helps with additional power when the fan motor is started. If the cooling reduces or the electricity bills are higher than normal then a likely cause could be a faulty air conditioner capacitor. If the ac capacitory completely blows out then the air conditioner fan will not start but produce a humming sound.
