Benefits of Late Season AC Installation

We’re officially into the fall season. However, there’s no sign that it’ll be cooling down any time soon. By now, you have a good idea of how well your AC performed over the summer. If your AC is outdated and didn’t do a great job of keeping you cool, now’s a good time to think about air conditioning installation.

You might be thinking that you can put this off until next spring. However, there are many advantages to getting a new air conditioner now. Not only will you save money, but you’ll be ready for unexpected hot weather. Let’s go over the benefits of late-season AC installation.

Avoid Annual Price Increases

In 2023, AC systems increased sharply in price because of the change from SEER to SEER2 standards. Looking at the future, it’s expected that the cost of a new air conditioner will increase by approximately 6–8% annually. These expected price increases are due to many factors such as increased raw material costs, increased labor rates, and increased fuel and transportation costs.

The average lifespan of an AC system is 10–15 years. If your system is at the tail end of this estimate, it’s time for a new system. You’re better off getting a new one now rather than waiting until next year when AC manufacturer price increases are expected.

Make an Informed Decision

Do you know when the worst time to buy an AC system is? When it’s the beginning of a heatwave in the middle of summer and your old air conditioner has broken down completely. It’s when they’ve been working the hardest that many AC systems finally kick the bucket. 

When you need a new AC stat, you’re not necessarily going to choose the best system for your long-term needs. All you can think about is the short-term and getting through your cooling crisis.

When you buy an AC in the off-season, there’s a lot less pressure to decide right away. You’re in the position to make an informed decision. Talk with our technicians about your cooling needs and your long-term plans for your home ownership. When you take all these factors into consideration, you’ll be rewarded with a new system that’ll serve you well for as long as you own your home.

Be Ready for a Heatwave

The onset of autumn is no guarantee in Georgia that cooler weather is on the horizon. In fact, an unexpected heatwave is likely to occur between now and winter. Let a brand-new, high-efficiency air conditioner combat the next autumn heatwave for you. 

It’s Shoulder Season for HVAC Companies

This is the time of year when we start to get fewer calls for emergency AC repairs and installations. It’s the perfect time to talk with our technicians about your home comfort so we can help you choose the perfect system for your home and family. It’s also much easier to schedule an installation around your schedule and at your leisure.
