Why Replace in Fall?
There are a few advantages to replacing your air conditioning system during the fall season:
- Better availability of technicians – now that our busy heating season is over, it is easier to schedule an appointment with our technicians.
- Better temperatures – the cooler temperatures of the fall season allow our technicians to replace your system while it’s comfortable outside rather than during a hot summer day.
- Potential savings – installing a new air conditioner after cooling season may yield some savings via promotions and/or sales on equipment.
Reasons to Replace Your Current AC
If you are on the fence about whether or not to replace your system now, consider the following:
- Better energy efficiency – today’s air conditioners are far more energy efficient than those of just 10 years ago. In addition, the federal law changed in 2006 mandating that all air conditioners have a minimum SEER of 13; previously, the minimum SEER was 10. As such, if your air conditioner is more than 8 years old, you may be operating a system that isn’t as efficient as today’s models. According to Energystar.gov, each point higher on the SEER scale equates to an approximate savings of 10% on your annual air conditioning costs, which can be a significant savings for homeowners.
- Better comfort – an aging air conditioner can struggle to achieve your set temperature due to aging components. This won’t be an issue with a new system.
- Reliability – if you paid for numerous AC repairs this summer, you know how important it is to have a reliable air conditioner. A new system can offer you both reliability and durability for years to come.
