Depends of course on size and brand of your unit, and on whether that compressor model is still in production or they have to find one in stock somewhere else around the country, but generally $1000-2000 range parts and labor combined, meaning typically on the order of half or more the cost of a new AC system - which would have a new warranty and the new R410a gas so you avoid the Freon phaseout issue and higher gas replacement cost every time you need a leak repaired.

A fair number of previous questions about replacement versus repair can be found in the Home > HVAC link in Browse Projects, at lower left - discussing warranty, repair cost, expected life and amortization issues, and return on investment with a more efficient unit. In many cases, a totally new unit is a more economic solution, especially if your existing unit is over 10 years old.

I would contact several Heating and A/C (your Search the List category) vendors and ask for repair cost AND totally new unit replacement cost, so you can compare. Be sure you are talking comparable quantity units and SEER rating between vendors.
