ASHRAE – the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers says:

Most homes in warm climates have air conditioning. For some, air conditioning may be a luxury, but for many, it is a necessity. Given the expense of the equipment and the power to run it, ASHRAE wants consumers to be informed about their air conditioning systems.

Should it become necessary to replace that system, seek out a qualified HVAC professional.
