When Is the Best Time to Buy an Air Conditioner?

It’s hard to know how hot it may turn out to be this summer in Sacramento. The weather shows that we have had a warmer February and March than last year which could mean a very hot summer. You may be looking at your aging air conditioner wondering when is the best time to buy an air conditioner? So, if your Air Conditioner barely made it through last summer now would be the ideal time to consider replacement. If you have an air conditioning unit that is more than 12-15 years old, you may be able to offset your monthly payments on a new A/C in utility savings alone. If you’re considering buying a new air conditioner, here are some times that we recommend for the best sales and energy savings for your home.

Replace your Air Conditioner during the Colder Months

Prices of air conditioner units are much lower during fall and winter season, when people are busy going shopping for gifts. No one is thinking about buying these things. This is why both air conditioning units and installation services come at reduced prices. This is, also, the time when installers are readily available, unlike spring when they are very much in demand and you can’t seem to find any. If you have your unit installed during winter, by the time summer comes, you will be ready to face the heat.

Unless you already have a perfectly working air conditioner this spring, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to wait through another Sacramento summer before getting to the colder months. Luckily, there are still ways that you can buy an air conditioner and save money.

Replace your Air Conditioner during the spring

You might be thinking, “Why would I buy in the spring if buying during the fall and winter saves me more money on a new air conditioner?” If you know that your air conditioner will not make it through the summer, buying a new, more energy-efficient air conditioner will save you money on your monthly utility bills. Many models may even save you money through tax credits on your return next year! There are amazing financing options out there now for all credit types too like the Hero Program in select areas like Citrus Heights, Stockton, and Vacaville. We can also work with challenged credit through our other pace programs. No matter what time of the year, you wont be without air conditioning in your home as long as you qualify for one of these programs.
