An ac capacitor is a small cylindrical, oval or square shaped device inside your heat pump or air conditioner that supplies or stores energy. 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.
