If you have considered replacing your HVAC, this fall may be the right time of year for you. Waiting for the cooler temperatures can save you money, time and hassle. Here are 5 reasons why.
1. Plenty of Time for Decision-Making
Suffering through the heat of a summer day with no AC can lead to hasty decisions. If you replace your AC in the summer you won’t want to take the time to weigh your options and find the best system for you.
2. Money and Energy Savings
Demand for HVAC units peak in the summer months, driving up the price. By choosing to replace your unit in the fall, you can take advantage of the lower prices and financing options. It also allows you time to consider a high-efficiency system that will save energy.
3. Less Installation Delays
It’s natural that with an increase in demand there is going to be an increase in delays. In the cooler months there might be a slight delay in installation but you and your family will be more comfortable with the cooler temperatures outside.
4. Avoid Heat Pump Problems
It can be hard to identify a problem with your heat pump before it quits working completely. It can sound like its working correctly but in truth, it could not be heating your home efficiently and costing you money. When you replace your AC in the fall, you can have your heat pump inspected and avoid costly repairs and poor heating in the winter months.
5. Better Service
In the fall season, there isn’t as high of a demand for HVAC technicians. This means that they will have more time and availability to focus on your specific HVAC needs. You can count on being able to schedule inspections, installations, and replacements with a shorter wait time.
So if your AC system is giving you issues or is getting older, now may be the time to schedule a technician to come and inspect it. Take advantage of the cooler temperatures and the fall season to do your research and determine the best options for your home’s HVAC needs.
