An AC breakdown in the heat of a Florida summer can be stressful for homeowners and business owners alike.

In 2021, homeowners paid between $150-$600 for air conditioner repair, with about $350 being average.

While AC air filter replacement or cleaning is generally an easy and inexpensive job, you can expect to pay between $75-$200 for it, depending on the minimum amount charged by your HVAC repair technician.
If your AC filter is easy to reach, this may be something you'd want to check and maintain on your own. You should change (or at least inspect) your AC filter seasonally or every 90 days.
If your AC has been making strange noises, several problems could be contributing to the issue. The fan on your AC unit is one such contributor. Repairing the fan or blower usually costs between $150-$200.
You may be able to help stave off fan and blower issues by clearing debris from your AC unit regularly. If sticks, leaves, and other debris collect inside, this can burn out the blower motor or restrict the fan from moving.
While you may only need to replace your thermostat every few decades or so, you now have more choices than ever when it comes to upgrades. In today’s market, you can expect to spend anywhere from $50-$250 or more on a thermostat replacement, depending on the thermostat you choose.
The cooling coils in your AC unit can stop working properly for a variety of reasons. If your evaporator coil begins to leak, for example, you’ll need to replace or repair the coil and top up any coolant that leaked from it in the process.
