What Does an AC Tune-Up Cost?

NexGen What Does an AC Tune Up Cost

An AC tune-up includes the maintenance needed to improve comfort, reliability, and efficiency. Tune-ups can also help avoid expensive repairs. However, they don’t come cheap. Homeowners often wonder how much the service will cost them. The price depends on the scope of the service and where you live. Let’s look at the possible cost of an AC tune-up.

The Average Cost of an AC Tune-Up

According to Forbes, a tune-up can cost anywhere from $30 to $300. On average, it costs around $120 to tune up your air conditioner.¹ That’s a small price compared to repairs that can cost thousands of dollars. A tune-up can even help your AC last longer, delaying the need to pay for a replacement unit.

Factors that Affect the AC Tune-Up Cost

Not every tune-up is the same just as not every air conditioner is the same. The cost of tuning up an AC depends on the following:

Also, note that inspections of your ductwork and ventilation system will cost extra. According to Angi, this can run between $80 and $450.² 

Can I Perform an AC Tune-Up Myself?

You won’t save on performing an AC tune-up yourself. Aside from changing the filter and doing simple cleanings, attempting to replace a fan motor, repair a refrigerant leak, or complete any other type of major repair can result in more damage and void the warranty.

When Should I Get an AC Tune-Up?

An annual tune-up should be completed in the spring. It will ensure your AC works all summer and can save on energy bills. Schedule additional maintenance throughout the year if your air conditioner is older or has known issues.

How Long Does It Take?

A standard tune-up takes about an hour if the system doesn’t need any significant repairs. 

What’s Included in an AC Tune-Up?

Most HVAC contractors include tune-ups in their maintenance packages. They often include air filter replacements and inspections of fan motors, capacitors, and ducts. A technician will also check the thermostat and electrical controls. Checking refrigerant levels helps determine if there is a leak.  If necessary, the drainage system is inspected and flushed.

Amazing Reviews From Our Loved Clients

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
