Default 2012 Civic Hybrid AC Thermal Switch

I have had my 2012 Civic Hybrid into a few different shops since the AC stopped cooling a couple of weeks ago. The consensus is that the thermal switch is bad and needs to be replaced. However, what no one can tell me is if the compressor itself is responsible for the switch failing. I'm trying to decide if I should preemptively replace the compressor when they do the switch. Has anyone else had this part fail on its own? Is it worth the extra $987 in parts? Or is it better to try to avoid paying labor twice?
