For an accurate estimate for your AC compressor replacement cost here in South Louisiana, call Bob's!First, check the warranty

The first step in any AC compressor failure is to check the warranty. Depending on the age and manufacturer of your system, your compressor’s warranty can vary. As long as the failure wasn’t caused by improper installation or intentional damage, you can expect a warranty between five years and a lifetime warranty.

Some warranties only cover the compressor itself. In that case, you’ll need to contact your installation contractor to determine whether you still have a labor warranty in place.

Cost factors

There are a wide range of factors that determine the cost of an AC repair. Large repairs, like a new compressor, obviously cost more than a minor repair. The compressor is a major repair, so plan on it costing more than other repair services you may have received.

In general, larger AC units cost more to repair or replace than smaller units. Larger compressors are more difficult and time consuming to remove and replace.

As with all AC repairs, the best way to get an accurate estimate is to contact your local HVAC professionals here at Bob’s Heating & Air Conditioning. We believe in providing upfront, honest estimates to our customers.

Repair or replace?

Your AC compressor replacement cost can vary greatly, but—in most cases—this is a relatively expensive repair. Depending on the age of your AC unit and its general condition, you may want to consider replacing your entire unit. A new air conditioner will not only give you a brand-new compressor, you’ll also be able to take advantage of a new manufacturer’s warranty and new energy-efficiency options.
