Minor repairs like replacing sensors and hoses can cost between $200 and $800. Major services like replacing the A/C compressor range from $475 to $4,000 depending on your car and location. The cost of automotive AC components and the amount of labor involved in auto AC repair varies hugely from vehicle to vehicle.

According to the current pricing trends, the cost to diagnose a car air conditioner issue is in the $100 range. This cost doesn’t involve any repairs following your car AC check - like a car AC recharge service to refill the low refrigerant.
How long does it take to fix an auto A/C?
Alpha Off-Road is known for providing fast yet professional vehicle repair services for Santa Clarita customers. When your vehicle gets evaluated by our car A/C doctors, we will provide you with an estimated timeframe that will be needed to repair your vehicle's air conditioner completely. Different contributing factors to the overall time to complete can include required labor hours, stock of parts, and your car model.
How often should car AC be checked?
There is no industry-standard interval to check vehicle climate control systems — best advice: follow the maintenance schedule in your car’s manual.
Why does my A/C have weak airflow?
Excess moisture in the evaporator core can cause the buildup of scraps that blocks airflow to the cabin. Also, a loss of air pressure to the blower is also a signal that your AC unit has an open or damaged seal. It'll reduce the amount of cold air that makes its way to the cabin, but it also allows moisture in, compromising the whole system.
What causes an air conditioning system leaks?
Moisture and age. Rubber hoses and seals can also lose their elasticity during time and breakdown, letting Freon escape and moisture to enter the vehicle’s air conditioning system. Moisture is a death penalty for your air conditioner, mixing with refrigerant and producing a system destroying corrosive acid.

Common Auto AC and Heat Repair Problems

Leaking Refrigerant

A refrigerant leak can arise at any point in the AC process, and so it's sometimes tricky to identify the location of the leak. The most common spots where leaks are found are at AC unit hose connections. It's possible to see an oily substance accumulating around these connections, which is likely the leaking reason. A mechanic can use a sealant (specifically designed for car air conditioning repair) found at most auto parts shops to close the leak.

Blocked and Clogged Condenser

If the condenser is blocked or clogged by the road dirt, then it'll be unable to adequately cool the refrigerant, and the vehicle's system will continue to operate with overheated refrigerant. This will rapidly cause the air conditioning unit only to expel hot air. In most cars, the condenser is found at the front of the car; therefore, it should be easy to notice if anything is blocking it. It can easily be removed from the grill of the issues, and the problem should be resolved.

Broken Condenser

If there doesn't appear that blocks the condenser, it's likely that it may be broken altogether. It can be caused by a puncture from road debris going through your vehicle's grill and damaging the part or equipment failure. In case you notice any noticeable punctures in the condenser, the only way to solve the problem is by replacement.

Electrical Issues

Electrical problems are perhaps the most difficult issue to diagnose when it comes to an AC unit that has stopped working. A visual inspection should be done to check if any wires are frayed or broken. If any damaged wires are located, they should be mended using electrical tape or replaced altogether. If you’re unable to visually locate any electrical problems, it may be time to take your car to an experienced mechanic for further diagnosis.

Faulty Cooling Fans

When fans aren’t properly functioning, your condenser may not get correct cooling. During the time, this can cause a vehicle to start emitting only hot air. The best way to check if the cooling fan is broken is via a visual inspection. Road specks of dirt can cause cracks in the fan, and replacement is the only way to address this issue. Other common issues with cooling fans include blown fuses and other electrical problems. These issues may have to be handled by a professional unless you have experience in electrical work.
