The best time to buy an Air Conditioner

Whether you are going through a hot summer or a very cold winter, it is essential to think about when is the best time to buy a new air conditioner. Knowing what that moment may seem complex, but with the correct information, you can save time and money with your purchase.

The urgency to buy a new HVAC system can depend on your needs. Your times will be different if your air conditioner system works but you want more power or your old unit has been broken since last summer. If you ask your family and friends, you will likely receive answers such as “take advantage of the offers at the end of the hot season”. Is it so? Let’s review it in detail.

The most important thing is that you do research about the brands and specs in the market and have the help of an expert to resolve any doubts. Remember that Ice Blast has an expert team of qualified air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and electricians providing high-quality domestic and commercial installations, repairs, maintenance, mechanical services and safety work.

If your home is being built, ¡It’s the moment!

We are not always lucky enough to be able to buy an air conditioning system for a building at the moment of its construction. However, if we have the opportunity, it is important to take advantage of the moment.

The most efficient air conditioning systems require installations inside the walls. This means that the structure of your home or business must be intervened. Imagine the noise, dust and tools that this requires. Likewise, if you need a complete renovation to install your air conditioning system, you will need a higher investment of money.

If this is not your case, you have probably thought about what time of year will be the best to buy a new air conditioning unit. Let’s review more details about it.

The best season to buy an air conditioner

The first advice we can give you is not to wait until the seasons with more extreme temperatures to decide to buy a new air conditioner. Whether due to the cold of winter or the high temperatures of summer, when these times are about to arrive, the demand increases.

This increased demand means that if you make a last-minute decision, you will have to deal with issues such as:

  • Sold out models and lack of units available for purchase.
  • Busy schedules in expert air conditioning installation services or long waiting times.
  • Make purchases without sufficient prior research and make “little mistakes” such as units that are not the right size or need extra repair in your home.

It’s also important that you don’t get carried away by the idea that the winter low in degrees is the best time. As mentioned in an article in Forbes (2022), “that isn’t true; HVAC professionals are busy working on heating units during winter months, which can contribute to a longer wait and greater expense.”

We know that not everyone can wait for a specific time of year to make a purchase. If this is your case, don’t worry. At Ice Blast, we have experts available at any time of the year. You can request a free quote to purchase the air conditioning system that interests you most and the installation service that allows you to make the most of it.

Autumn is a good option

Taking into account the effects of high demands, the best month to decide to install your new air conditioning unit is autumn. For this reason the months of March, April and May can be a moment with low demand.

Many brands may be preparing new models to receive winter. Also, you might grab a bargain picking up last year’s model. Click here and contact Ice Blast today!
