After this hot summer, it will be nice to finally turn your air conditioning off and enjoy the cool fall weather. But while your A/C system may be going into retirement for the winter, it’s not quite time to put it completely out of mind. How old is your A/C unit? Was it able to keep up with last season’s heatwave? If not, now is the perfect time to replace it. Here are three reasons why:
You are less likely to be using your A/C system in the fall…which is perfect if you’re considering replacing it. Instead of suffering without A/C in the summer heat, have it taken care of in the cool months, before it’s needed. This also allows for more freedom with scheduling, as most HVAC technicians aren’t as busy during the fall.
If you’re replacing your air conditioning system in the summer, it’s most likely the result of an unexpected problem. You may end up making a snap decision about the unit you choose, because you want to spend as little time as possible sweating it out in the brutal Indiana heat. In the fall, you have much more time to do your research, comparing and contrasting various units to make the best decision for your home. If your HVAC system is old, you might be surprised to learn about all the new features and technology available on the market today—greater energy efficiency, more effective humidity and noise reduction, programmable WiFi thermostats…. These are just a few of the bells and whistles you’ll come across when looking at all the new products out there.
Remember reason number 2 up there, about all the time you’ll have to research the different kinds of new HVAC equipment and systems? That can translate to huge savings for you. You’ll have time to shop around and compare prices…and time to save the money necessary to make the switch. In addition, many companies (Appel, included!) run deals on off-season installation and maintenance.
