    Default What is a "Lazy Compressor"?

    I just had to get my air conditioner repaired twice this summer and was told that the unit will temporarily work but will need a new unit because I have a "Lazy Compressor". The unit is probably about 40 years old though I had to get a new commpressor about 6 or 7 years ago. We are hopefully going to wait till the spring. The repairman showed me a burnt out wire that he replaced and he fixed it and didn't charge since he fixed it about a month or so again. I was just curious about what it was and what caused it to do that but could find nothing online about it,

    Hi,

    Central air is out of my field of expertize but I would be more inclined to think it is meant like an inefficient compressor...which means it isn't pumping 100% any more.

    Thanks! I really appreciate your answer. I know nothing about heT and air except how to change the filter!
