On average, when you call an HVAC technician out to service your central air conditioning system, you can expect to pay between $200 and $600 in repair costs. Prices for AC repairs vary widely depending on the problem, the part(s) needed, and the complexity of the repair. Use the following guide to learn how much air conditioning repairs typically cost, from the cheapest overall to the most expensive.
A seasonal maintenance visit - usually referred to as a tune-up - will be around $80 to $100. Annual maintenance is essential for preventing major repairs to your system and saving you a lot of money over time. Also, regular service can help a home inspector certify that your system is in working order, should you decide to sell your home.
Troubleshooting an air conditioning issue can vary from $75 to $180 depending on where you live, the unit's size, and what time of year it is. HVAC professionals' time is at a premium in the sweltering summer months, so some companies charge a higher hourly labor rate. Neighborly Tip: We charge the same hourly rate year-round, even after hours and on weekends!
Since these kinds of simple projects are relatively quick to complete, it generally only costs between $15 and $300 to replace an AC unit's fuses, circuit breakers, or relays.
You could pay between $115 and $250 to replace your thermostat. Repairing the unit is a little less expensive but isn't recommended. Upgrading to a smart thermostat will enhance your AC system's efficiency and save you money on your monthly energy bill.
You can expect to pay from $120 to $475 to replace an AC capacitor, and the repair should take less than an hour when done by a professional.
The cost to recharge a central AC system can vary greatly, depending on the size of your air conditioner, the type of refrigerant your unit uses, and the amount that you need. This could be as low as $100 for newer units, but you should be prepared to pay over $600 if your system is over ten years old. This is due to R-22 refrigerant being obsolete and much more expensive than modern R-410A.
Repairing an AC blower motor can cost as little as $150. However, if it can't be fixed, replacing the motor can cost on average $250-$800, or possibly even $2,000 for a high-end model. The more premium the model, the more its blower will cost.
An AC compressor replacement is quite costly and can be upwards of $1,200 to install. If you notice that your air conditioner is blowing warm air, is overly noisy, or vibrates when starting, a failing or failed compressor could be the issue. Repairing a compressor isn't usually as cost-effective long-term as replacing it.
A professional visit for an AC Freon leak costs $225-$1,600 depending on the time to fix and the leak's severity. If the leak caused other damage, it could take more than eight hours to detect and fix.
A new condenser averages about $1,750 to install, but this varies on the unit. Ask your AC tech if the condenser can be repaired instead of paying for an outright replacement to save some money.
Replacing your system's fan coil could run you $2,000. Though occasionally you might opt to repair a fan coil leak, it's usually best to replace it instead.
Your HVAC system's air handler works to circulate hot and cool air throughout your home. As one of the main components of your AC system, the air handler is an expensive thing to replace. Installing a new air handler could be $2,200-$3,800.
For the installation of ductwork alone, you can expect to pay about $2,000 for replacement. If you need entirely new ductwork and an HVAC system, it could cost you from $9,200 to $12,300 since this project is very involved and can take up to several days to complete.
