Run into a problem? Here’s the HVAC repair costs to expect

As the cold of winter fades away, it’s a skip, hop, and jump away before we crank up the AC. With increasingly warmer weather, our units work harder, longer. The additional work can push our units to the breakdown point. Knowing what to expect for an HVAC repair allows you time to build a nest egg of savings for the eventual repair costs.

Basic HVAC repairs run anywhere between $100 and $1200, with the average costing around $410. Labor for your repair generally ranges from $80 to $150 an hour, jumping to $150 to $275 for emergency calls.  Maintenance plans can help mitigate the increased rate of emergency calls. Technicians can often catch issues before they turn into true emergencies, saving your wallet from avoidable breakdowns caused by ignored issues.

The average costs of HVAC repair and replacement are listed below; however, keep in mind costs could be higher or lower depending on the unit.

  • Ac unit: $5,900
