Fall and Winter — A Good Time to Buy a New A/C

That’s right. We said air conditioners. As the weather turns cold, it may seem strange to think about air conditioning, but there are a few good reasons to invest now. We’ve put together a list of some of the advantages to buying a new air conditioning unit in the fall, as opposed to waiting until when the weather is warm.

Avoid Potential Delays

Most people don’t think about cooling until the weather starts to turn, and HVAC installers naturally get busier. This could lead to a delay in installation and a delay in your comfort. The average air conditioner lasts about 15 years, depending on the unit, and if your unit is getting close to the end its lifespan, replacing it can help lower your cooling bills.

Avoid Expensive Repairs

If your unit is approaching the end of its life, you may notice it requires more and more repairs, which can get expensive. Also, if your unit has to work harder, it’s using more energy. Replacing your unit now before it gives out entirely will save you headaches and costly repairs.

Time to Research

If you’re planning ahead for your air conditioning needs, you have the luxury of comparing products and making the best decision for your needs. When your unit conks out in the middle of summer, you’re inevitably rushed to make a quick, emergency decision.
