Common AC Repair Costs

August 27, 2019 | Blog

AC repair costAlong with restoring cool comfort to your home, ASAP,  the AC repair cost is another important issue if your system ever malfunctions. It’s natural to want to know as much as possible about potential expenses you may be facing. For that reason, “guesstimates” over the phone aren’t good enough. Because you deserve a fair and accurate evaluation, most reputable HVAC contractors prefer to fully diagnose the problem, then provide a free estimate in writing.

How Repair Costs Are Figured

Just like the local climate, typical air conditioner repair bills differ around the country, depending on locale. However, these standard costs usually apply:

  • A service call fee if you agree to have recommended repairs.
  • The total bill also includes the charge for labor time plus cost of any  replacement parts.
  • If the work is requested after-hours or on a weekend or holiday, an   emergency service charge may apply, as well.

Across the nation, the cost for an air conditioner repair currently averages just over $300. Of course, this average calculation includes both minor fixes and major repairs, so any specific job may be more or less than the average, depending upon complexity of the work.

Here are some common AC repairs and typical price ranges, based on national surveys:

  • Clear clogged condensate drain: $75 – $250.
  • Fix refrigerant leak: $200 – $1500.
  • Replace condenser coil $1,900 – $2,900
  • Install new compressor : $1,900
  • Repair/replace blower fan: $200 – $600
  • Replace electrical components including fuses, relays, breakers, etc: $75 – $290.

Cutting Repair Costs With A Service Agreement

One way to reduce an AC repair bill is our Peak Efficiency Service Agreement. For an annual fee, homeowners get benefits such as:

  • 24-hour emergency service.
  • No overtime charge for after hours or emergency repairs.
  • Discount on parts and labor.

The service agreement also includes two annual system tune-ups. These manufacturer-recommended maintenance procedures support longer system life, reduced repairs, and ensure optimum energy efficiency and lower operating costs. In most cases, annual tune-ups are also required by the manufacturer’s warranty terms.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
