Hi there. What you are describing sounds a lot like an AC compressor issue. However, it could be a relay or switch problem as well that’s causing the inconsistent operation of your AC system. The best way to know for sure is to have one of our professional mobile mechanics come to your location and complete an AC is not working inspection first, so they can pinpoint the precise source of your issues and complete the right repairs.
