How Much Does it Cost to Replace an HVAC Control Board?
TechXpert verified by Ken Kontra
Replacing the control board on your heating and cooling system will cost you anywhere from $400 to $600. When replacing an HVAC control board, price can vary due to the cost and availability of the part, cost of labor (hiring a qualified technician), and costs beyond warranty and insurance.
Cut to the Cost
Pricing is always a hard topic when it comes to HVAC work, because it can be difficult to know what you need and you want to get the best bang for your buck without compromising on what matters most. But a broken HVAC control board doesn't have to blow your budget. Here's what to consider when you're pricing out your replacement control board system.
Control Your Control Board
Each part has a special place in your system, and your control board is the brains of the operation. So when you’re looking for the right candidate for the job, don’t skimp on the details: you’ll want to choose the best control board for your unit. However, each HVAC unit is different, which means the cost can vary — the part itself often costs somewhere between $150 and $500 dollars.
Calling A Professional
Just like parts, labor costs can vary. Your location, timeframe, size of your unit, and various other factors can push the price up or down, but your best bet is to find a reputable technician who can quote an accurate and transparent labor cost upfront, so you have the information and confidence to move forward with the installation your system requires.
Warranty and Insurance
Another fee you’ll encounter when changing your control board is warranty and insurance costs. While warranty and insurance on your new control board may seem like an additional expense, they’re important to protect both you and your contractor. Warranty and insurance can range in price depending on the part, size, and contractor you use.
