Have you been thinking about replacing your old air conditioner with a new, more energy-efficient model? Does your AC unit no longer cool your house at effectively as it used to or are you worried that it won’t make it through the summer? If you answered yes to any of these questions, here is why you should start thinking about having a new one installed in either the fall or early spring.
Avoid the Summer Rush
Most HVAC companies are extremely busy with repairs during the summer, which generally makes this the absolute worst time to need air conditioner installation. The same is also true during the coldest winter months when contractors are usually swamped with heating repair jobs. As a result, it can sometimes be several weeks or even months before you can even get an appointment. This is one of the biggest reasons why you should think about replacing your old air conditioner early.
Scheduling an appointment to have your new air conditioner installed during the fall, late winter or early spring means you can avoid the rush and have the job taken care of in a timely manner. Moreover, being proactive and replacing your air conditioner before the old one quits ensures that you’ll be able to enjoy its benefits throughout the summer instead of potentially being without AC for a few days or even weeks.
Shop Early to Find the Best Deals
Another reason you should consider having your new air conditioner installed before the summer hits is that you may be able to get a deal on the purchase of the new unit. Air conditioners are almost never going to be on sale during the middle of the summer due to the increased demand. However, you can often find them at a discounted price when you shop outside of the prime season. In this way, you might be able to get a more energy-efficient unit for a similar price or otherwise spend a bit less money on your new AC unit.
