Why Choose Replacement Instead of Repair?

Some homeowners might put off AC replacement until their old unit dies completely. However, this practice can end up costing you hundreds of dollars in excess cooling costs and repair fees due to degraded efficiency and performance over time. Instead, look out for the following signs that signal it’s time to schedule AC replacement to avoid overpaying for your home comfort:

  • The system is older than 15 years old
  • There’s been a dramatic decrease in performance and efficiency despite consistent use
  • You’ve experienced a sudden increase in cooling expenses
  • You call for AC repair constantly
  • The price to repair your system is 50% or more than it would be to replace it

Enjoy the benefit of high-performance cooling in your home by finding your ideal replacement system at Blanton’s. Call our team at (910) 822-2866 or schedule air conditioning replacement online!

Air Conditioning FAQs

How long will my air conditioning system last?

While Chapel Hill summers can be brutally hot, today’s modern air conditioning systems are designed to withstand years of southern heat without issue. The state-of-the-art cooling equipment selection available at Blanton’s can easily last between 12 to 15 years with regular maintenance. In fact, some homeowners have even enjoyed up to 20 years of hassle-free comfort from their well-maintained AC systems. Remember: The better maintained your unit, the longer it will last.

What maintenance is required for my AC unit?

Air conditioners have many different components that require careful maintenance in order to operate efficiently. During your AC maintenance appointment, your HVAC service professional will:

  • Clean blower fans and cabinets
  • Inspect and refill refrigerant levels
  • Verify proper airflow
  • Test start capacitors and relays
  • Check electrical connections
  • Test thermostats and system controls
  • Measure current draw of compressor and fan motors

Should I repair or replace my AC system?

In some instances, the best course of action is complete system replacement rather than a repair. Consider replacing your air conditioner instead of repairing it if:

  • The unit is older than 15 years old
  • You’ve made increased repair requests in recent months/years
  • You’ve had increased cooling expenses despite consistent use
  • The cost to repair the unit is 50% or more than it would be to replace it

What’s considered an air conditioning repair emergency?

Our emergency air conditioning repair professionals work hard to resolve all AC repair requests that come our way in the most timely, efficient manner possible. However, we will prioritize any AC emergencies that involve the following:

  • Burning odors
  • Sparks
  • Total breakdown during severe heat

These situations pose the highest risk for fire, heatstroke, and other negative side effects. If you’ve experienced any of the aforementioned problems with your air conditioner, please communicate them to your AC repair service professional at Blanton’s for the quickest resolution.

What size AC unit do I need for my Chapel Hill home?

The size of your air conditioner is arguably the most important thing about it. If you have the wrong-sized equipment, you won’t be able to achieve the desired comfort level in your home. Our team helps you select the ideal equipment for your home based on a number of factors, including:

  • Home size
  • Window coverings
  • Insulation
  • Window facing
  • Existing ductwork
  • Budget
  • And much more!

How often do air conditioners need maintenance?

Air conditioners require annual maintenance from a professional service professional in order to operate at peak performance. If you have a heat pump installed, it’s recommended that you schedule maintenance twice annually: once before the summer and once before the winter.

Why You’ll Love Us!

We had a small issue with a previous repair and Blanton’s honored their guarantee 100%. Sven and his trainee, Dev were fast, efficient, and as always, friendly and respectful of our home. Thank you again! Janet K.

Thank you, Dekota, and thank you Blanton's. Dekota was awesome! He walked through everything with me. I feel smarter, but not ready to be a plumber yet! Thank you for coming out the same day and giving me a fair price! I'll be requesting him for any future jobs! Cheryl D.

Nick and Jacob were awesome! They went above and beyond fixing our piping. Both were very knowledgeable about their job and kept us updated on what they were doing and explained to us. If we could give more stars we most definitely would. I highly recommend Blanton’s for plumbing and will be using them for electrical as well because of their quality of work. Dayna W.

I was very happy with the first-class service that Tim Hair, the plumbing technician provided from Blanton’s. He was very knowledgeable and his customer service was beyond what I could ever imagine!!! If I could give them more than 5 stars I would!!! Rochelle F.

I would definitely recommend Blanton’s! Service was great and they came so quick when I had a plumbing emergency. Thank you so much, Sven Headon and apprentice! I appreciate your kind and timely service! Lena G.
