When to Replace Old AC

Stephen Jabro

As outside temperatures in Missouri rise above 90 degrees this summer, having a central air conditioning system is crucial for your safety. However, if you have a broken or older system, it’s time to buy a new one. While there’s no set time for replacing old AC, especially if you need one pronto, here are some suggestions on when to replace your HVAC system.

When is the Best Time to Install Air Conditioning?

The best time to install new AC is around the spring or fall for two reasons: Summer is the busiest time of year for replacing AC. It’s also the hottest time of year. HVAC companies see most of their business during the peak seasons – winter and summer – so customers needing service may find it harder to get help. In other words, the best time to call is during the slower periods in the spring or fall when you need immediate service.

Similarly, summer is the hottest time of year. A working air conditioner helps you stay safe and comfortable at home. Having a broken air conditioner when temperatures reach almost 100 degrees is detrimental to your health and wellness. Therefore, replacing your air conditioner in the spring or fall ensures cool air and home comfort in the summer.

Reasons to Replace Your Old AC

There are also many reasons to replace your old AC unit, including

  • Cost-Efficiency
  • Durability
  • Energy-Efficiency
  • Peace of Mind

You can expect lower energy bills and more durable, long-lasting equipment. The life expectancy of your new AC system should last ten to fifteen years with regular maintenance. As a homeowner, you’ll feel safe and comfortable with a new air conditioner based on your lifestyle needs and budget.
