AC Compressor Installation & Replacement

We can help you with replacement of your compressor we service units up to 15 Tons of cooling capacity, residential and light commercial.

Our certified HVAC Repair technicians are prepared to perform your compressor repair or replacement. If you have an old air conditioner that uses a costly refrigerant like R-22, there is a chance we may be able to get your existing air conditioner running at a much lower cost by using a replacement refrigerant when replacing your compressor. When using replacement refrigerants manufacturers calculate with the different refrigerant you may get a 5-10% reduction in cooling and or btu’s of course your CFM / Air flow through out your ducts remains the same. Most homeowners that have their compressors replaced in Los Angeles do not notice the difference with the replacement refrigerant.

When a compressor fails or is having problems on start up, air conditioning companies do not give the option to replace the ac compressor in your system. A typical compressor replacement can run between $1700 to $3200+. Installation pricing of a compressor is also determined by how much refrigerant your HVAC system takes, some systems can take as little as 5Lbs while other systems can take up to 15+ Lbs or refrigerant. The price we quote you will be with refrigerant included unless stated otherwise. We service the Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita and Ventura County areas.
