HVAC & Electrician FAQs

How much does it cost to replace an air conditioning unit in Palm Springs?

It costs around $3,500-$12,000+ to replace an air conditioning unit in Palm Springs, CA. Price will vary based on several factors:

  • The size of your house.
  • The type of air conditioning unit you have installed.
  • The cost to remove your current AC unit.

Getting your current air conditioning unit replaced is a good way to improve the climate control in your home and also cut down on energy and repair costs.

Why is my AC running but not cooling my home in Palm Springs?

Your AC unit may be running but not cooling your home in Palm Springs, CA because:

  • Your air filters are blocked
  • Your AC unit has a refrigerant leak
  • Your evaporator coil is dirty or frozen

If your AC unit is running but not cooling your home, there may be a deeper issue going on with your air conditioner. If you replace your air filters and set your thermostat correctly and it is still not working properly, you should have an HVAC technician repair your AC unit.

How much does residential AC repair servicing usually cost in Palm Springs?

Minor HVAC repairs, such as fuses, breakers or thermostat replacement, cost between $150 and $290. You can expect to spend $200 to $1,500 on substantial repairs such as repairing a refrigerant leak or evaporator coil.

Additional heating and cooling repairs will increase the cost, but keeping your furnace and central air conditioning system in good working order will save you money in the long run. The cost of air conditioning repair will also vary depending on the size of your home and the brand and type of heating and cooling system you have installed.

How much does AC maintenance cost near Palm Springs?

For simple tune-ups, regular AC maintenance costs $75 to $200. Extended service contracts range from $150 to $500 and cover the entire HVAC system, including heating and cooling.

Maintenance calls typically include cleaning the condenser and performing a series of checks to ensure that your system is operating properly. We'll also look for other repair and maintenance issues. Standard AC tune-ups do not usually include evaporator coil or duct cleaning.

The best time to have AC maintenance done is in spring, but if your air conditioning tune-up was overlooked, you can have it done anytime during summer to improve your AC’s performance.

What is the average cost for LED lighting in Palm Springs?

The average cost for LED lighting in Palm Springs is $100-$150 per light fixture. The price largely depends on:

  • The number of light fixtures you want
  • The type of light fixtures you want
  • The number of watts you will need

LED lighting lasts longer and uses less energy so you save on your monthly energy costs!

How much does it cost to hire an electrician near Palm Springs?

The average cost of a small electrical job is $140 to $420. Larger jobs can range from $1,600 to $10,000 or more. To save money, make a list of all the electrical work that needs to be done in your home and have it completed in one or two visits. Other electricians typically charge $40 to $100 per hour and a $75 service call-out fee. Hydes charges by the job, not the hour.

Equipment non operational found blown high voltage circuit. Replaced capacitor, high voltage fuses, and compressor start kit and unit started up. After further inspection found unit over amping pulling 28/29 RLA amps which is extremely high and should be 22-24 amps. Advised this indicates compressor is failing and will eventually blow high voltage circuit again. Do to poor condition of equipment and being past life expectancy will schedule to install new equipment. Office to call to schedule tomorrow attached estimate below.

I Performed Maintenance on the Cooling System. Also replaced a 12x30 filter. The system is a 2017 model located in the hallway closet and outside on the ground. I also flushed the condensate drain. I found that the dual run capacitor tested weak and out of manufactures specifications. Replaced run capacitor under full warranty due to client staying on maintenance plan the entire time. I then tested the system. The system checked out operational and within manufactures specifications at the time of the service.

East unit bedroom sn 7p1f low on refrigerant. Checked for leak and cannot locate leak. Advised will need to perform leak search to determine leak location. Due to age of equipment would be wise to replace condenser and evaporator coil to avoid multiple potential problems. Will recharge system for now for temporary cooling, client aware refrigerant will leak again. Attached estimate below for condenser and coil replacement

This is the first time visit from Hyde’s to my home, and Frank was very prompt, courteous, and respectful of my home, and informative about what I needed for this particular visit. He also provided me a great quote for a new unit which I know. I definitely need within the next year or so. It’s a much better price than my last service company provided me so I’m staying with Hyde’s. Thank you Frank!

This review is for Chrissy, Izzy, his assistants the day of install (apologies for not remembering their names),the after hours phone staff and our go-to tech…Thor. Every interaction was the gold standard of customer service. From quick estimates provided, the same questions patiently answered several times, the follow up, the timeliness, ease of scheduling the install, the efficient install day and follow up visit to pay w/Thor installing the hard start …it all went very, very smoothly. We really have been fans of Hydes from our original unit maintenance to replacing that unit to now installing another new unit at our rental property. We couldn’t be happier. Lastly, give Thor a raise or a promotion. He is knowledgeable, friendly and so patient!
