AC Repair FAQs

How much should home AC service cost?

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.

Why isn’t my home air conditioner cooling my home?

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.

What’s wrong with my home air conditioner if it won’t turn on?

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.

How much does it cost to repair a home air conditioner?

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.

Why isn’t my home AC system cooling my home?

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.

Should I repair or replace my home air conditioning system?

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.

What is the most expensive part to fix or replace on an air conditioner unit?

The most expensive part to fix or replace on an air conditioner unit is typically the compressor. The compressor is essential for circulating refrigerant and maintaining pressure in the system. Its replacement can cost anywhere from $1,200 to $2,800, including labor. This cost varies based on the unit's size, brand, and whether it’s under warranty. In some cases, replacing the entire unit might be more cost-effective than replacing the compressor.

Signs You Need an AC Repair

If you are unfamiliar with AC unit’s it can be tough to know when your air conditioner needs a repair. Luckily, you can look out for a few signs that indicate you need an AC repair, such as:

  • Your air conditioner is blowing warm air.
  • There is excess humidity in your home.
  • Your air conditioner cycles on and off frequently.
  • There are strange noises coming from your AC unit.
  • Your air conditioner is not turning on.

If you notice any of these issues, you should have your air conditioner repaired right away. Getting your AC system repaired quickly helps to ensure that your AC unit does experience any further damage.

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.

Logan P. was very thorough and did excellent work. He explained the process of getting my reverse osmosis system online so I could understand it! I’d highly recommend Hurlburt and Logan.

Amazing people! On time, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Honestly, I would not use anyone else, Hurlburt offers best service at excellent price, which is to say, vastly superior value as compared to other companies in town. I know it because I did try two other before finally getting to experience the Hurlburt quality. Today, Mr Bubba Steffels was extraordinarily helpful in understanding my needs re HRV, AC, and ventilation--thank you!

I 100% recommend everyone use Hurlburt for any of their home owner needs. We recently were left without power when a breaker flipped and couldn't get it to flip back. I did everything Google said I could do.. and then I called a professional.Hurlburt was able to quickly make me an appointment and squeeze me in an already tight schedule. Frank and his partner (who's name I cannot remember) came to my house as scheduled. I really do appreciate it when businesses give me a "heads up" text, so I know that the technician is coming.Both individuals were incredibly professional, courteous, and genuine. They were very clear about pricing and options. Thankfully, my repair only took half an hour.I will be going to Hurlburt for my other home owner needs. I will also be recommending them to my friends and family. Thank you again!
