After an incredibly hot summer in Arizona, it has been nice to turn off the air conditioning and enjoy the fresh air from the outdoors. But, while your A/C may be headed into hibernation for the heating season, it’s not quite time to put it completely out of mind.
Why does Alaskan Air Conditioning and Heating say this? Because it may be time to ask yourself these questions in consideration of replacing it:
- How old is my A/C unit?
- How well did it really keep up with the past summer’s heatwave?
- Will 2019 refrigerated air systems be more costly than 2018’s?
- Does 2018 offer equipment, Federal or local energy rebates that I can take advantage of to offset my investment?
- How available will technicians be in Phoenix or Tucson when I HAVE TO replace my air conditioner?
The answers to these questions may all be reasons why it may make more sense to replace your HVAC today rather than waiting until you absolutely have to, especially if you know that a replacement in 2019 is imminent. Here’s some other considerations that may influence your decision to replace:
- No Immediate Need – Convenient Scheduling
You are less likely to be using your A/C again until the spring. Instead of suffering without adequate cooling in the Arizona heat, have it taken care of now. This also allows for more freedom to meet your schedule, as most HVAC technicians in Phoenix and Tucson aren’t as busy right now.
- Take Your Time to Make Your Best Buying Decision
If you’re having to replace your current air conditioning system in the height of summer, it’s most likely the result of an unexpected issue. You will have to make a quick decision about the system you choose just to get out of the brutal Phoenix and Tucson heat. This time of year, you have much more time to do your research, make comparisons on equipment options and local contractors to make the best decision for your budget and your home. If your HVAC system is really old, you will be delighted to learn how far the innovations in heating and cooling have come and how many wonderful new features are available—greater energy efficiency, more effective humidity, air cleaning and noise reduction, programmable or Wi-Fi smart thermostats…. These are just a few of the upgrades you’ll come across when looking at all of the options available today.
- You May Save More With Sales, Closeouts and Rebates
Efficiency and programmability of HVAC equipment translates into huge savings. Equipment warranties can also affect the cost of the lifetime value of new HVAC system in a positive way. These factors should help you make your best buying decision. You have time today to shop around and compare features and prices…and time always translates into savings!
