Why Fall Is the Best Season to Replace Your Old HVAC System

We all want to make sure our homes are as comfortable and inviting 365 days out of the year. That is why it is very important that our HVAC system and heater system are always operating smoothly. However, it’s best to consider having a thorough air conditioning service, before putting it aside for the winter by hiring a certified HVAC contractor for the job. If the system is very old or has been demanding persistent HVAC service, you might decide to have it replaced. When it does come time to replace your HVAC system, the fall season is actually the best time.

Here are some reasons why you should consider replacing your old HVAC system during the fall:

Allows for More Research

Replacing your HVAC system in the fall will give you more time to do the research you need. Look at different companies and see what type of financing options are available. Different AC systems will have different installation and air conditioning maintenance requirements. Make sure you find the system that will work for you.

Other Reasons:

It Will Save You Money.

By replacing your system in the fall, you put time on your side. Time to research the type of equipment that would be best for your situation instead of just replicating whatever you had before.

You Can Get What You Want.

Since you and the contractor both have more time to figure out what system to buy, you can also take time to see some of the latest technology available in HVAC systems.

Beware of the Dying Heat Pump.

If it was not keeping up during the hottest days in the summer, it will not keep up on the coldest days of the winter and you might end up paying extra on your power bills since you will be using auxiliary resistance heaters to stay warm.

Energy Savings from High Efficiency Systems.

HVAC systems get replaced when they are about 14-16 years old. So, if your system is getting older or you have had some problems recently it might be worth taking some time in the fall to do your research and schedule a consultation with one of our contractors who can talk with you about the best options for your home HVAC investments.
