A reliable and efficient home cooling system is essential to survive the hot summers here in the Coastal Bend. If your air conditioner is getting older, it’s breaking down more often and/or you’re concerned that it may not make it through another cooling season, now’s the time to plan an A/C replacement. Here are some tips on why upgrading your A/C during the winter is a wise decision:
Greater Scheduling Flexibility
Now that our long cooling season has ended, HVAC pros in the Corpus Christi area are experiencing a yearly slower period where they’re not fully booked making repairs, servicing and installing new cooling equipment. By tackling your air conditioner replacement during this annual lull, you’ll avoid a long wait for an installation date, plus you can plan it for a time that’s meshes perfectly with your family’s schedule.
Full Season Energy Savings
Having your new, efficient A/C installed and ready for use next spring ensures that you’ll spend less on energy and save on operating costs throughout the entire upcoming cooling season.
Potential Cost Savings
Many reputable HVAC contractors offer discounts on the cost of new equipment and installation during the slower winter months, and this offers you an opportunity to save even more when upgrading your old A/C.
Ample Time to Compare Options
Since you’re done using the A/C for the season, there’s no downside to being without cooling so you don’t have to rush your purchasing decision. This allows you ample time to investigate the latest beneficial A/C features like a two-stage compressor, variable-speed air handler and thermal expansion valve. You can also compare the energy savings offered by A/Cs with different SEER ratings so you can weigh upfront versus lifetime costs.
Less Stress and Inconvenience
Replacing your older air conditioner this winter means you won’t have to deal with the inconvenience of a mid-cooling season failure that leaves your home too hot and sticky for comfort while you wait for an emergency A/C installation.
