If you're thinking about replacing your current air conditioning system but haven't settled on a good timetable, then you may want to act right now. With spring just around the corner and summer to follow shortly, you'll want to replace your air conditioner before warmer temperatures arrive. Here are a few good reasons why replacing your A/C system now can pay off later on.
Reason #1: You'll Have an Easier Time Scheduling an Appointment
Getting a hold of your HVAC technician at the peak of the summer cooling season can be tough. Technicians are usually in high demand around this time due to emergency repairs and HVAC replacements, so getting a same-day appointment could verge on the impossible. It's not unusual to be forced to wait several days or even weeks before your HVAC technician can squeeze in a service call.
Fortunately, that's not the case during the winter and early spring. The relative lull in demand frees up technicians to respond quickly to any installation request. Not only will you be able to schedule an appointment within a day or less, but the installation process itself is likely to go faster and smoother.
Reason #2: You Still Have Time to Take Advantage of Seasonal Discounts
Seasonal demands for HVAC equipment often mean discounts and rebates for certain types of equipment. As a result, you may be able to take advantage of rebates and incentives for air conditioning equipment throughout the winter. With HVAC manufacturers keen on clearing out old stock, you may be able to find a good deal for hundreds or even thousands off the original sticker price.
It's not just equipment that's discounted during the winter. Many HVAC contractors also offer discounts for wintertime installation of central air conditioners and other cooling equipment. So not only can you save on purchasing your new A/C system, but you can also save on the labor as well.
Reason #3: Your Old A/C System Could Break Down When You Need It Most
If you think your old A/C system has one more summer left in it, you might be sorely mistaken. It's not unusual for older cooling systems to become overworked during the hottest days of the summer, resulting in catastrophic failures that could leave your home sweltering. Instead of waiting for the inevitable to happen, you could save yourself the trouble by replacing your old A/C system with a newer and more energy efficient model while there's still time.Share
