Cost to Repair a Commercial AC
Having a working air conditioning unit is something that a lot of people take for granted, especially in the summer. However, when the air conditioning unit breaks, it becomes immediately clear just how much it was relied on. Unfortunately, it always seems as though air conditioning units break at the worst possible times. When this happens, it’s important to know the average AC repair cost.
Average to Repair Commercial AC
The cost to repair a broken air conditioning unit can vary depending on the specific problem and the brand of air conditioner being serviced. Of course, with occasional maintenance and quick resolution for the most common repairs, your AC unit should last a very long time, up to 20 years if you’re lucky.
AC Unit Repair Cost Factors
Of course, there are certain factors that can increase or decrease your air conditioner service cost. Those factors include:
The average lifespan of an AC unit is 15 years. Just like us, AC units get beat up and slow down over the years. As such, the older the unit is, the more expensive your repair will be. While the extent of the damage will certainly play a bigger role in your average HVAC repair bill, age will factor in.
If you’re unit is more than 10 years old, you should consider replacing the air conditioner. Many pros go by the $5,000 rule. Multiple the repair cost by the age of the unit. If it’s over $5,000, replace; do not repair.
Sadly, HVAC issues seem to come up at the worst times. That’s because most of us do not use the air conditioner until summer or late spring. Clearly, these are the months cool, constant air is most appreciated. Believe it or not, other homeowners are going through the same dilemma.
Since HVAC pros know they’re in high demand in the summer, they tend to charge more than a repair required in January or October. Essentially, just like a plumber, they charge extra for emergency repairs. As demand goes up, so does supply.
As you might expect, the more efficient the unit is (or newer), the lower your average AC repair cost will be. Keep in mind, if for some reason your high-efficient repair bill is high, you’re still saving on energy costs every month through your electric and gas bills.
The less work your system has to apply, the longer it will last. Therefore, adjusting your thermostat or opening the windows can greatly deter and lower certain AC maintenance and repair costs.
When you’re not home, raise the thermostat. When you leave for vacation, raise the thermostat. Don’t apply so much force (e.g. lower temperatures) when it’s not needed. This will not only lower the lifetime cost of the unit, but extend it as well.
We will get into specifics later, but there are plenty of recommended maintenance items all homeowners should strongly consider if you want you to extend the lifespan of your AC unit. Furthermore, regular maintenance prevents certain repairs less organized homeowners see every few years. Some easy and highly recommended AC unit maintenance tasks include:
- Changing Filters
- Close Open Spaces
- Clean Coils
- Annual Tune-ups
All AC repairs were not created equal. While a new filter could cost as low as $20, a refrigerant leak repair can cost up to $1,600 depend kind refrigerant. Just like any aspect of the house, certain repairs will mostly depend on the damage. Clearly, the more serious issues will cost more. That not only means more time for the HVAC pro, but more complexity and materials as well. Sadly, neither come without a hefty markup.

Called and Jose was at my house within a few hours. Doesn’t charge a trip fee , you only pay for his time and parts which aren’t doubled in price. Couldn’t be happier. Nice to find a air and heat Company that’s trust worthy and so reasonably priced. He also has no problem working week ends without charging extra. Very satisfied. 😀
