When to call for professional AC repair:
- Your air conditioning is turning on and off excessively
- The cooling system is making unusual noises
- There are leaks around the air conditioning
- The low temperate is not enough to cool the entire house
- Your home is not getting colder even after adjusting the thermostat
Our cooling service professionals are also available for emergency repairs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you don’t have to lose your cool when your air conditioning has suddenly failed you.
Is it Time to Consider AC Replacement?
If your air conditioning is having trouble keeping up with your cooling needs all of a sudden, you might want to brace yourself for the possibility of replacing it. We know that this is the last thing homeowners like you want to hear. However, if your air conditioning is already 15 years or older, prone to breakdowns, and the reason why your energy bill is on the rise, replacing it would be the more cost-effective solution.
The benefits of AC replacement include:
- Improved energy-efficiency
- Ultimate comfort control
- Savings on your energy bill
- Quieter operation
Blanton’s carries a wide selection of cooling systems from the most reputable brands on the market today, and 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 Sanford 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 1 to 3 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 it 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 Does SEER stand for?
SEER is the seasonal energy efficiency ratio, which represents the efficiency of your air conditioning system over a typical cooling season. Systems with a higher SEER will use less energy and cost less to operate. At Blanton’s, we feature high-performance air conditioning equipment that ranges from 14 SEER to over 20 SEER.
Is a high-efficiency AC unit worth the investment?
Although a 20+ SEER air conditioner may cost more upfront to install, it can save you money every month on your energy bills for the life of the system. Make sure your air conditioner performs at its best with proper sizing and a professional installation from our team at Blanton’s Air, Plumbing, & Electric.
Can I install an air conditioning system myself?
A central air conditioner requires advanced skills and costly equipment to install properly, and many jurisdictions will not approve an AC installation unless it was done by a licensed HVAC professional.
