What Does a Chiller Service Call Cost?

What does a commercial or industrial Chiller service call cost in Dallas & Ft. Worth, TX? Commonly it may run you somewhere between $125 to $200. Some variables depend on our travel distance, equipment type, and a 24hr Emergency Service call.

If your chiller requires any additional services and repairs, you may need to pay extra money for that. Quite commonly, a chiller service call cost may take between 2 to 4 hours of labor. These labor costs average between $135 to $150 per hour, depending on equipment type.

For example, many chiller service call costs revolve around issues with poor heat transfer. These heat transfer issues can result from contaminants from hard water, scaling, algae, and debris.

These contaminants can block the condenser tubes and other components, increasing thermal resistance. A chiller service call cost includes diagnosing heat transfer issues, including checking all pressures relating to discharge and suction. 

Other typical chiller service call costs include electrical issues. However, these issues include electrical error codes, which can vary greatly depending on what is behind the error code. 

On the low side, it may cost you between $400 to $1,000 total. More extensive repair and replacement, such as leakage in the condenser coils, may cost you between $750 to $2,500.
