While my kids were playing in the backyard, one of them kicked the soccer ball into the outside condenser unit.
The impact was so strong that it made a loud bang and the ball actually left a small dent in the side of it.
Worried, I began to look at the condenser unit and speculate if anything was broken. I went inside and listened to the air conditioning coming out of the air vents, but nothing seemed unusual. I didn’t know much about HVAC systems, but I knew that kicking a soccer ball into the condenser unit wasn’t good. Since I was anxious about it, I decided to call an HVAC professional to come look at my AC system and the condenser unit. Thankfully, the professional was able to come to my house within a few hours and look everything over for me. He ran several tests on the equipment and he returned with a positive report. The AC system appeared to be working fine and the dent in the condenser unit didn’t seem to be causing any issues. He did advise that we stop playing around the condenser unit, but other than that, the AC system was good to go. I was relieved by his findings, but I still kept a close eye on the AC system just to be sure that nothing was wrong. I’m glad I called the HVAC professional because I would have spent more time worrying about it when there wasn’t anything actually wrong with it.
