Does a Dead Compressor Mean Your AC Must Be Replaced?

Does a Dead Compressor Mean the Whole AC Has to Be Replaced?

Monday, October 4th, 2021

It’s the scariest phrase to hear in connection to an air conditioning system: “the compressor is fried.” Once the compressor breaks, the conventional wisdom is that the whole AC has come to its end and it’s time to replace it with a new one.

But there are no absolutes when it comes to a dead compressor. Sometimes there’s more to the story than an automatic replacement. We’ve handled air conditioning services in Blanchard, LA for more than half a century, and we’ve often helped people with the trouble of a broken compressor.
