Many homeowners replace their air conditioning system during the summer when Florida temperatures and humidity levels are high. But while homeowners seldom consider replacing their air conditioning systems during the cooler winter months, this is actually the best time to buy a new system.
If your air conditioner struggled to get through the summer, you’re actually in luck. Here are three reasons why winter is the best time to buy a new air conditioning system.

1. REPLACING YOUR AIR CONDITIONER IN THE WINTER WILL SAVE YOU MONEY.

Two words: supply and demand. Between emergency repairs and installations, the summer months are when HVAC companies are busiest. On the contrary, fewer people need air conditioning during the winter months so the supply far outweighs the demand. The good news for consumers is that sales, discounts, specials and rebates on air conditioning systems are easy to find in the winter.

2. HAVING AN AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM INSTALLED DURING THE WINTER WON’T LEAVE YOU SWEATING.

Let’s face it—there’s never a convenient time for your air conditioning system to break down. However, if your air conditioner breaks down in the summer, you’ll be left sweating while you wait for it to be replaced. Having your air conditioning system replaced during the winter means you won’t have to wait it out in 90 degree weather. Even better, because HVAC companies aren’t as busy during the winter, chances are you’ll be able to have your new system installed whenever it’s most convenient for you.

3. YOU CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CUTTING-EDGE PRODUCTS AT DISCOUNTED RATES.

New air conditioning systems are more energy-efficient. The latest technology continually makes updates to produce higher energy saving products. People can take advantage of the off-season and make it work in their favor. Many people can buy a higher energy efficient air conditioner without the higher price tag. The bottom line is that you get more bang for your buck during the winter months.
