** The hourly street rate for central air conditioner repair cost is the per-hour rate a contractor charges for repairs that do not involve parts. In most cases, these rates are already factored into the total cost of the repair and are not charged separately. The rate is a computed value based on time, general materials, and company overhead like the office, phones, gas, etc.


*** There are an endless number of manufacturer specific oem circuit boards for central air conditioners. The cost of the parts varies widely.


**** Higher cost central air conditioner repair prices should prompt you to request replacement estimates at the same time. 


***** Finding leaks in a central air conditioner system is not an easy task. Companies will use dye packs or other tools like sniffers to locate leaks, but it can take several hours on systems with concealed parts. In many cases, when a slow leak cannot be immediately located, it’s an indication that the evaporator coil or lineset is the culprit. When that occurs, you should consider replacement if the unit is older than 8-10 years.
