When is the Best Time To Buy An Air Conditioner?
The short answer to this is, “it depends,” but read on!
Did your air conditioner give out after a long and hard summer? Or maybe your heater quit on you last winter and you’re ready to get a new one before the winter arrives.
When it comes to replacing your AC unit, or your entire air conditioning system, there are different views of when the best time is to look at replacing or upgrading to a central air conditioning unit. Some say off season, such as during the cooler months in Autumn or winter months when the cooling systems are not in high demand because the outside has cool air, believing the new price for a new air conditioner can be lower during that time, while others say wait for HVAC companies and retailers to offer rebates to get the best prices on a new AC system.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Air Conditioner?
“Ah, it feels SO nice in here!” THAT is what we want to both feel and hear from others when they come into our home, and when it comes to energy efficiency and getting homeowners the best options for a new air conditioner that fits their home and is humming like a finely tuned racing car, Climate Control is the HVAC company of choice for many satisfied customers in the Kansas City metro!
If you suspect your AC unit may not be up to the task of keeping you cool much longer (or as cool as you’d like it to be) let alone working next summer, it may be a good idea to consider replacing your HVAC system with a new system now. The Comfort Bear and Team are here to help you decide if it really is time to do so, or if you can maybe get by with another HVAC system repair vs replacing that old system.
If your air conditioner and heating system is under 10 years old and hasn’t had a lot of repair needs in that time and has had regular tune-ups and regular maintenance as needed, it’s a different story, than one that’s over 15 years old and has had multiple issues like refrigerant leaks, compressors, condensers, adding freon every year, and so on. We’ll elaborate below, as we go through the reasons you may want to consider replacement of your old system with a new high-efficiency central air conditioner instead of continuing to go through AC repair after repair as well as higher energy bills:

Don’t Get Caught Off Guard by These 7 Common AC Problems
If there’s anything homeowners know, it’s the importance of a fully functioning, efficiently operating air conditioner during a Kansas City summer. When you set your thermostat and turn on your air condition system you expect cool air to flow from your ductwork, but if instead you feel hot air, or hear squealing from your blower motor, or hear terrible noises from your outside unit, you know it may be time to call a HVAC technician to perform troubleshooting and get your air conditioning system back to blowing cool air.
An air conditioner in disrepair will only cost you more money than it should, and leave you and your family feeling hot air, and feeling pretty uncomfortable.
