Simple tune-ups for your air conditioner might cost anything from $75 to $200. Most repairs cost around $350-$500 on average, while major repairs can run as much as $2000. This is based on a typical rate of $50-$150 an hour for labor, plus parts.
Dirty filters are the most prevalent source of AC problems. Filters can clog due to dirt, pet hair, pollen and dust. When filters become clogged, the airflow through your air conditioner becomes restricted. As a consequence, your air conditioner won't efficiently chill your home. Filters that are clogged might cause problems with the interior evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser unit in your system.
The first thing to look for if your air conditioner won't turn on is a blown fuse or a tripped breaker. If the circuit was overloaded, there's a strong likelihood the problem is a tripped breaker. If you reset the breaker and it trips again, have an HVAC professional come run a diagnostic test and perform any necessary repairs.
It typically costs between $200 and $900 to repair a home air conditioner, with an average cost of about $375. This price range applies to common repairs like recharging your coolant, fixing thermostat issues and troubleshooting frozen coils. More extensive repairs, like replacing the compressor, could cost over $1000.
Filters that are blocked are the most common source of AC problems. When filters get clogged, they impede the passage of air through your air conditioner. As a consequence, your air conditioner is unable to efficiently chill your interior air. Filters that are clogged might cause problems with your system's interior evaporator coil and outdoor condenser unit.
Another typical problem is that the refrigerant is leaking or low. Refrigerant, a chemical that transports heat from an interior place to the outside, is used in air conditioning systems. Your air conditioner may have trouble cooling your house if the refrigerant level is low.
A normal air conditioning system lasts for roughly 10-15 years. If your system is more than 10 years old, you may want to consider replacing it.
Also, if your repair expense is greater than $1,500, scheduling air conditioning installation may be a more cost-effective alternative. A new air conditioner is more energy-efficient, which means you'll save money on cooling expenses in the long run.

How to Combat AC Repairs
The top two ways to combat AC repairs is to get your air conditioner on a maintenance plan and to replace your AC unit’s air filter as needed. Generally, you should replace your air filter once every three months or once every 1-2 months if you have pets or multiple members in your household. Air conditioner maintenance plans enable your AC unit to receive the proper amount of servicing it needs to run efficiently and requires fewer repairs.
Should Your Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?
Are you trying to determine whether it is the correct time to replace your air conditioner? An easy way to choose whether to replace your air conditioner is if the cost of a repair is more than half of the cost to replace your home’s air conditioner. If the repair is over half of the cost of replacement, it is more cost effective to get your air conditioner replaced. If your air conditioner doesn't require a repair, but is running less efficiently, you should consider replacing it about every 10-15 years.
