Repairing Your Air Conditioner
Should Be Straight Forward

YOU DESERVE TO UNDERSTAND OUR PRICING UP FRONT

How much will it cost to repair my air conditioner?

We know that getting your A/C repaired can be a scary process, mostly due to the unknown cost. It's hard to know the cost of an air conditioner repair until we know what is broken. An incorrect diagnosis can mean wasting time and money chasing the wrong problem.

While it's hard to know the cost of an air conditioner repair until we know what is broken, you deserve a correct diagnosis and Honest Pricing.

The Watkins Way:

  • Straight Forward

    We will never pressure you to spend more than you can afford or to “buy now.” We’re just here to explain available options. You shouldn’t dread a service call!

Honest Pricing: Air Conditioner Repairs

This small representation of our part-specific, Honest Pricing is only intended to be a guide. Prices may vary if your system requires parts directly from the Original Equipment Manufactuer (OEM). Our full parts catalog allows for pages of options and we will consult with you on what's best for your situation.

For example, we have circuit boards with prices that range from $235 to over $920, based on your specific model number. Why pay $920 when your system uses the $235 board?
