If this past summer made it obvious that your air conditioning system is no longer able to keep up with cooling needs, now may be the best time to replace the system. Installing a new central A/C in the fall has several benefits, plus it prevents you from forgetting about the problem until the A/C is needed again.
Benefits of Installing a New Central A/C in the Fall
- Contractor availability: Many HVAC contractors stay busy during the summer and winter, repairing catastrophic system failures and performing routine maintenance. In the fall and the spring when the weather’s nice, homeowners are less apt to think about the HVAC system, leaving contractors with a reduced workload. By installing a new central A/C in the fall, your contractor will likely have plenty of time to do the installation properly, and you may even save on installation costs.
- Lower system price: At the end of summer, prices are often cut on patio furniture, pool supplies and many outdoor toys to get rid of them fast and make room for new merchandise. Like these seasonal items, air conditioning systems can often be had at a lower price after the end of summer, especially if the model is due to be replaced by a newer version.
- Good weather: Depending on the complexity of the installation, it may take more than one day to complete the job, especially if major changes, such as installing new air ducts, are required. With the milder weather of the fall, the installation won’t be as much of an inconvenience if your system has to remain off for a day.
