When is the Best Time to Replace HVAC System?
Replacing your AC system is inevitable from time to time. Whether the unit is extremely old, it has been damaged beyond repair, it is not cooling or heating properly or replacing is cheaper than repairing, it is imperative to replace your HVAC system with a new one and gain the peace of mind that your family is safe.
However, replacing HVAC system in the season could translate into a slower turnaround time and higher inconvenience. There is no doubt that the best time to replace HVAC systems is during the off-season.
More than often, the off-season stretches from late September to mid-November and from early March to mid-May is the best time to replace HVAC system for your home or business. You basically have one month and a half during the spring and another two month and a half during the fall. Depending on the weather in your area, this period of time may vary. For instance, you might enjoy a prolonged fall in Florida and California and thus get more time for replacement, while in the Northeast you might have more time to replace your HVAC during the late spring.
Of course, replacing your HVAC system requires certain conditions. For instance, you should only buy a new AC system if your unit is older than 10-15 years, has constant dust leakages, makes a lot of noise due to prolonged activity, costs you increasingly more money, and lastly has some serious humidity, heating and cooling inconsistencies.
Once you decide that it is the best time to replace HVAC system, you want to make sure that the company you use is highly reputable, and has great online reviews. You want a company that has a high rating with the Better business bureau (BBB), is licensed and insured. You will also want a permit to be pulled and it inspected by the city or county you live in after the install is complete. This should be paid for by the contractor.
In the summer and winter, most air conditioning and heating contractors are extremely busy with replacing, maintaining and installing HVAC units. If you want to enjoy a quick replacement service, you might need to wait at least a few weeks until the contractor of your choice sends a team your way.
In the spring and fall, the weather is usually mild, with no extreme temperatures. This period is great for outdoor activities and very bad for the HVAC industry. People do not use HVAC systems anymore, because there is no need. Because of that, contractors and suppliers are willing to decrease the installation costs by offering extra discounts, while retailers and manufactures have to lower HVAC systems prices in order to survive a down market. Moreover, contractors have many teams available, so they will be more than eager to install your air conditioner ASAP to receive a positive review and even some recommendations from you.
