Why the off-season is the best time to upgrade your HVAC system

The best time to replace your furnace or air conditioning systems is when you don’t have to worry about it working. It is better to replace it in the off-season, such as Spring or Fall, and be ready before you need it.

If your HVAC system is more than 10 – 15 years old, leaking, costing more money every year and provides inconsistent temperatures, it might be time to replace your system. Repairing an old and inefficient system may cost you more money than replacing it for a newer, energy-efficient model.

So, why Spring or Fall?

During the Winter and Summer months, your HVAC system is going to work the hardest; therefore, it is crucial to inspect and potentially replace your system beforehand.

Save Time

During the slow season, an experienced HVAC technician would be less busy. This allows you to schedule a time that works best for you at your convenience. Your local HVAC repairman has a long list of people to see during the summer and fall, which would increase wait times.

Save Money

Without worrying about getting a quick replacement to get your heat or air conditioning back up and running, you can take your time to consider what options are best. Your HVAC technician could give you the most accurate choices for systems based on your budget, house, and needs. Additionally, during this time, brands typically go on sale.

Save Energy

Your current system may not be meeting your current needs. New systems are much more efficient than those manufactured even ten years ago. With a new system, you could be enhancing your home’s comfort with more consistent temperature, cleaner air, and less noise, all while saving money on your energy bills.

Heating and cooling systems are an essential part of being a homeowner and a key factor for comfort. With a regular maintenance program, you can prevent costly repairs and plan for your system’s replacement.

We recommend planning to replace it in the off-season, so it doesn’t break down when you need it the most. If you would like to schedule an appointment or get a quote, please contact us today.
