In the summer months, your air conditioner plays an important role in keeping your home cool. If your air conditioner is old or needs to be replaced, you might wonder when the best time is to install a new one. Continue reading to learn more.

Timing Matters

When to purchase and install a new AC unit depends on several factors. If your air conditioner breaks down in the middle of summer, you’ll want to replace it as soon as possible so that your house stays cool. You have more flexibility with your timing if your cooling system is in working condition and you’re simply looking to upgrade.

Target the Off-Season

Your air conditioner should be installed by a certified HVAC technician. Installation is best done in the spring and fall. You’ll want to avoid replacing your unit during the winter if you live in an area that experiences harsh winters. The HVAC industry is also extremely busy during the end of fall and the beginning of winter since households begin using their heaters. The team at Comphel Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. replaces many air conditioners in the summer months, but keep in mind that there will be a short gap in the cooling while we remove the old unit and install the new one.

If you purchase and install your air conditioner during the off-season, you have a better chance of getting a lower price because demand is lower. Additionally, you’re more likely to receive faster service since HVAC technicians have more availability.
