The Best Time to Buy a New HVAC System

Your air conditioner is a vital part of your Tallahassee, Florida, home during the summer, but it's also a big investment. Of course, you want to get the most for your money, which is why you should buy a new air conditioner when you can get the best deal. If you plan well, you can get a good price on a new HVAC system.

End of Summer

While it may seem counterintuitive to buy a new system after you need it, there are significant savings involved if you buy a new system after summer. Just like stores have massive after-Christmas sales, many HVAC companies and manufacturers offer sales and rebates on units and installation after peak season. If you can stand to wait out the summer without upgrading your system, you could see some significant savings on a new unit.

Right Before Summer

Although you probably won't find the lowest prices on HVAC systems during the summer, if your system is old, it might be worth the additional cost to install early in the season. If your technician sees a major issue during your preventive maintenance check, you don't want to go through the summer wondering if your system will last. Also, when your system is old or inefficient, you will likely see a spike in your utility bills. While the initial costs of a preseason installation might not be ideal for your budget, it could save you a lot of money over the course of the summer.

Shoulder Months

During the winter, HVAC companies are busy repairing and replacing furnaces and heat pumps, and during summer, is the peak season for air conditioners. The shoulder months of these seasons when the weather is milder tend to be a slow time for HVAC companies. Consider shopping during these shoulder months when you may find specials on installations.
