Compressor Failure?

No one is exempt from compressor failure, from high-end restaurants to high school cafeterias. The compressor is the component of any air conditioning device that “compresses” the coolant before passing it through the rest of the system to create cool air. It’s essentially the heart of the machine, and if this isn’t working, you’ll be blowing nothing but hot air. Unfortunately, it can happen to the best of us, so keep a cool head and get a professional opinion stat.

When a compressor fails, there is little time to save the products inside. The clock is ticking!
