How Often Do You Need to Replace Your AC Compressor?

Your AC compressor is a large part of your air conditioning unit. In some cases, it may be better to just replace your entire unit than to have to replace just your compressor. If you do just choose to replace your compressor, you should only have to do it once. Many compressors will come with warranties, so it may be best to just replace your compressor if it is still under the warranty. This part of your air conditioning unit plays a big role in how your unit performs, so it is important to get it fixed or replaced as soon as possible to keep your unit performing the way that it needs to.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Compressor:
. It is having a hard time starting up
. Your AC is making strange noises
. It is not performing the way that it should

Look for Warning Signs Your Compressor Is Not Working Properly

A professional can tell you for sure if you need a new compressor for your AC unit, but there are some warning signs to look out for that might alert to this possibility. If your AC unit is having a hard time starting up, this could mean that your compressor is about to go out. You should also be wary if you hear your AC unit making strange noises. If your AC unit is running, but not putting off cool air, you should get a professional to check out your unit right away to determine if it is a compressor problem or something else.

Once your compressor has been replaced once, it should last for the rest of the lifetime of your AC unless something unexpected happens. If it needs to be replaced again, you may want to consider replacing your entire unit unless it is still covered by a warranty. Professionals can help you decide what is right for your situation.
