When your AC unit or Heat Pump turns on the capacitor’s job is to provide a bolt of electricity (between 300-600 volts) to either start or run the compressor, fan motor, or blower motor. There are two types of capacitors inside most air conditioner and heat pump systems, a run capacitor and a start capacitor.
