I thought BayAreaAC would jump on answering this one - evidently he missed it, so I will take a shot at it.


If not done already - a $300 number sounds in the ballpark to me, because the valve itself costs around $100-200 depending on manufacturer. Probably a one to a bit more than 1 hour job, because unless isolation valves were put in (rare because they can become a leak point) he has to extract the refrigerant from the system, change out the valve (only a 5-10 minutes job itself), recharge the system, and test it and adjust the TXV valve as needed - so probably a solid hour work but commonly done with one man.


This assumes no gas has leaked out - if it has, additional $40-100/lb probably, and system can hold up to 5-10 pounds for typical 2000-3000SF house.

Prices vary a lot around the country, metro areas more then suburban and rural. So could be upwards of $400 in a metro area, even with the TXV under parts warranty. Unlikely that refrigerant would be needed,most TXV failures are not leaks,but possible.


So if the part is under warranty, $300 is good ,in any case.
