When to call for professional AC repair in Durham:

  • Your air conditioning unit kicks on and off more than usual

Air Conditioner Replacement & Installation

We know it’s pretty tempting to run your current cooling system until it goes kaput completely. But this is actually an inefficient course of action! In the years leading up to its demise, a cooling system frequently experiences massive efficiency and performance drops. If your AC unit is 15 years or older, prone to breakdowns, and you’re seeing sudden spikes in your energy bill, replacing it will save you money and headaches in the long run.

You should consider AC replacement if:

  • Your current AC system is over 15 years old
  • Your AC just can’t seem to keep up
  • You are constantly calling for AC repairs
  • Your energy bills have been increasing

Blanton’s offers a wide range of cooling systems from the most well-known, reputable HVAC brands on the market. We are ready to help you find and install a new air conditioner that’s right for your lifestyle and budget.

Frequently Asked Air Conditioning Questions

How long will my air conditioning system last?

Even with the harsh summers in the Durham area, you can typically expect your central air conditioner to last 12 to 15 years, while some that are impeccably maintained can last up to 20 years. For the longest service life, schedule maintenance services annually, keep the area around the outdoor unit free of debris, and replace the air filter every one to three months or as necessary.

What maintenance is required for my AC unit?

A typical AC maintenance visit will include cleaning the blower fan and cabinet, checking the refrigerant levels, verifying proper airflow, testing the start capacitor and relay, checking the electrical connections, testing the thermostat and controls, and measuring the current draw of the compressor and fan motors.

Should I repair or replace my AC unit?

If your air conditioner breaks down and is less than 10 years old, AC repairs are likely the best course of action, especially if the problem is minor, like a faulty start capacitor or contactor. If your central air conditioner is more than 10 years old, needs constant repairs, or has a costly part fail, such as the compressor or blower motor, an AC replacement may be the most cost-effective option.

What constitutes an AC emergency?

Burning odors, sparks, and not having a functional air conditioner on a hot day all constitute AC emergencies. Repairing your system as soon as possible ensures you don’t experience a fire, heatstroke, or other negative effects.

What size air conditioner do I need?

Proper sizing is essential and requires a thorough load calculation. Our certified HVAC specialists will calculate the appropriate size based on the size of your home, window coverings, insulation, window facing, existing ductwork, and other factors.

How often does my air conditioner need maintenance?

We recommend maintaining your air conditioner in the spring and again in the fall. This will ensure your system is ready for the summer and that any damage that occurs over the summer is repaired when the season ends.

Why is my air conditioner leaking, blowing hot air, or running continuously?

Normal condensation may appear as a leak. Or, it could be because the refrigerant line has been punctured or come loose. If it’s blowing hot air, it could be because of low refrigerant levels or because of a thermostat malfunction. And if it’s running continuously, it’s possible the unit is undersized for your home’s needs.
