Customer Question
Need to move ac...

Need to move ac compressor 12ft. what would that cost generally?

Contractor's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the HVAC Technician's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

Is a technician available in my area? 31216

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

This was suggested by another technician (It is currently under my deck)

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm creating the concrete pad

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just looking for some assistance and a second look

The auto reply was for the cost of getting assistance. I am a live technician. You can expect to pay about 350-400 dollars to relocate the unit.This will include copper tubing electrical, control wiring, evacuating and recharging the system.If you need help finding a contractor tell me what brand your unit is and I can point you in direction of a reliable ac person in your area.
