Is it worth it to replace the AC compressor?
Compressor burnout is a very special failure mode, which may be caused by the high temperature of the motor winding or the compressor discharge area. High temperature will damage the insulation layer of motor windings, which may cause resistance loss, and lead to ground short circuit or even winding open circuit.
If you suspect that your AC power may have blown the fuse, then the first thing you should pay attention to is that the AC external device has no effect. You may hear a slight buzzing sound, but this is only the degree. The humming sound is due to the furnace constantly requiring AC operation despite the lack of power.

First, let’s differentiate between a regular maintenance service and a contract. A maintenance service is a one-time call in for tune-ups and cleaning for HVAC systems. They spruce your HVAC system up, improving performance, maximizing energy-efficiency and lowering costs, and ensuring you get a long, healthy lifespan out of your heating and cooling system. A service contract is also all of these things. It’s just more long-term. Service contracts are plans and contracts for routine service. They can be pursued yearly, or you can go for a longer contract as you choose. But that’s not all a maintenance agreement is. With maintenance agreements you get all of the service of a maintenance visit, plus you also get discounts, priority service, routine services, and even cuts on labor costs.
