Although the weather is getting cooler, this isn’t the time to forget about your air conditioner. If you’ve noticed your current unit not running as efficiently, or not cooling your home as well as in summers past, now is a great time to consider replacing it instead of waiting until next spring. Air conditioners typically last 15-18 years, so if yours is nearing that benchmark, it may be wise to replace the unit before it breaks down entirely. Here are 3 things to know if you’re planning to buy a new A/C unit this fall:
1. You can avoid installation delays. Homeowners who purchase a new air conditioner in the summer can experience installation delays due to high demand. The unit may take longer to arrive, and you will likely be put on a list for installation. There is less demand for air conditioners in the fall, so delivery and installation will be faster. You’ll also be ready for the hot weather next spring and summer.
2. You will have more time to research your options so you can select the air conditioner that will work best for you. When A/C units break down unexpectedly, homeowners may feel rushed to make a decision on a new air conditioner because they don’t want to suffer in the heat. It’s better to be prepared to select a unit you’ve had time to determine is the best one that meets your needs, rather than having to make a quick decision down the road.
3. You may find good deals on air conditioning units in the fall. Just like with deliveries and installation, demand is higher in the summer months, and prices typically follow suit.
