When is the Best Time of Year to Buy a New AC System?

There is a lot of information out there that says you should buy a new air conditioning unit in the winter. We are here to give a little more concrete information and another approach to when you should buy your air conditioning system.

Buy an Air Conditioner In The “Off Season”

Yes, typically in Florida the off-season is December, but it is actually best to buy in the fall or spring when temperatures are milder. Your air conditioner isn’t working as hard at this time and AC companies aren’t typically as busy. It’s best to be proactive about your HVAC unit. If your AC breaks when you need it most (in incredibly hot or cold temperatures) you’ll find yourself overpaying and playing the waiting game. Don’t wait until your AC breaks down to purchase a new one.

“When Should I Replace my AC?”

If you don’t know if you need a new AC or not, here are some good rules of thumb when evaluating your potential HVAC purchase:

  • Your AC is more than 10 years old.
  • Your AC needs frequent repairs.
  • Your home has excessive dust and poor indoor air quality.
  • You don’t have a programmable thermostat and you’re often away from your home during the day.
  • Your home has hot and cold spots.
