Keeping your home’s air conditioner working at its best can help reduce repair costs in areas like Las Vegas, where you rely on your cooling each day.

What You Can Expect to Pay for AC Repairs in Las Vegas
It’s a hot day, and your air conditioner stops working. Not only is this frustrating, but depending on how high temperatures are, it can actually be a health risk. Do not put off giving us a call for repair needs.
The following are some guidelines for basic costs associated with AC repairs in Las Vegas.
Minimum Service Fee
Typically, when you contact a technician for any type of HVAC repair, you will pay a service fee. This is the least amount you can expect to pay to have a technician come to your home for repairs. This cost can range from $75 to $200 and depends on the company itself (and often, our costs are competitively low).
A minimum service fee is charged in addition to labor and parts. When you contact us about an appointment, be sure to ask about this cost.
Labor is a term used to describe the cost of having a technician do the work. Our AC repair technicians are highly reliable, certified professionals who ensure the work is done properly. The cost you pay for them is based on current market conditions and other factors.
However, this is very much different from one project to the next. You can expect to pay between $95 and $150 per hour for a technician’s time.
Keep in mind that your labor costs will pay not just for the technician that comes to your home but also for the company’s staff (like the people that you talked to when you called), as well as all costs associated with transportation to your location.

This is the biggest question in terms of costs. A small gasket may cost a few dollars, while a large motor for your air conditioner could cost several thousand dollars. It is very difficult to provide an estimate on these costs outright.
Some factors that play a role in the cost of parts, though, include the following:
- The make and model of your air conditioner (older models tend to be more expensive to repair)
- How accessible the necessary parts and components are
- The type of part, such as if it is new or refurbished
Most of the time, we can make air conditioner repairs happen fast with the parts that are available. Other times, especially if you have an older system, that is hard to do. Our goal is never to overcharge you for parts but to ensure that we get the right part the first time to ensure it is a fast and efficient process.
Emergency Service Costs
There are days when the temperatures in Las Vegas easily reach over 100 degrees, and anything after that point really requires an air conditioner to keep you safe. If your AC fails on a hot day, call us for emergency service.
Keep in mind that emergency service often means you will pay an additional fee for help. This may range from $210 up to $600, depending on what the company you select charges. Our contractors do not charge excessively, but we have to charge a higher rate for emergency services to ensure we have the technicians available and on hand to help you.
