Take Advantage of Fall HVAC Deals

Did you know that fall is the best time to replace your HVAC system? If you have been thinking about upgrading your unit or even just getting around to calling a technician for your annual tune-up, now is the best time to do so. Fall is often a slow season for the HVAC industry, making it an opportune time for homeowners to take advantage of great fall HVAC deals. If you want to save money on your HVAC upgrade read on to find out why fall is the best time to look into your options.

Why Fall is the Best Time for HVAC Upgrades

You may be wondering, why is fall the best time to upgrade my HVAC system? One of the main reasons many homeowners choose to upgrade their system in the fall is because fall is typically a mild season when your HVAC system isn’t working as hard as it is in other months. Rather than trying to update your system while your air conditioner or heater is running full blast, it is often more convenient to make the change and transition to a new system just before things start to cool down a little in the winter.

Due to the mild nature of fall weather in most areas of the country, many HVAC companies tend to slow down during this season. In an effort to serve more customers and keep themselves busy, HVAC companies will often offer special fall promotions, coupons, and rebates for HVAC systems, equipment, and services. This is great news for homeowners who are due for their annual tune-up or want to explore their HVAC upgrade options as it allows them to save money.

Two are Better Than One: Replacing Indoor and Outdoor HVAC Units

If your outdoor HVAC unit is the source of your problems, you may be reluctant to upgrade the indoor portion at the same time. It’s a perfectly understandable mindset — why would you want to replace anything that’s still working? The truth is, those mismatched pieces may cost a bit less up front, but they are not a solid long-term solution. Here are the reasons why:

  • Matching Systems Perform Better

Modern heat pumps and AC units are designed to work with the complementing indoor unit. The same technology is used throughout, and because they’re a set, they are engineered to work well together. There are no miscommunications or incorrect airflows with which to contend because that’s precisely how the units were designed to be used. This results in improved efficiency and incredible dependability.

  • The Efficiency Rating is Based on a Matching Set

Many people let the efficiency ratings on new equipment steer (or at least gently influence) their decisions. After all, who wouldn’t want to bring home a unit that would cost less to operate? The problem with this comes when you don’t buy a matching set. The SEER and AFUE ratings are based on a matching setup. If you don’t have the coordinating equipment, it can be impossible to determine what sort of efficiency you’ll actually get.

  • Technology is Very Different

Both indoor and outdoor units are better than they’ve ever been. Basically everything about them has been renovated and improved — from noise level to air handling and debris resistance. Sticking with a mix of old and new units is a bad idea because you will be missing the opportunity to have these incredible advances.

  • You Save Money in the Long Run

In addition to mixed systems being less efficient than matched ones, you’re going to face higher installation costs if you install new components separately. For example, if the outdoor or indoor unit cost $500 independently, but only $600 together, you’re immediately saving $400. You’re also reducing the inconvenience for yourself if you only have to contend with one installation.  

  • Bringing Home New Units Brings New Warranties

Warranties are a very big deal. When you purchase new indoor and outdoor units, you’ll be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty on both pieces. That means you will never have to worry about only one of component of your system being covered. Some warranties also require matching components from the same brand for coverage. In many cases, you’ll also have an installation warranty from your contractor.

Long Term Cost Saving for HVAC

Sometimes, it’s better to think about the long-term benefits than any short-term cost savings. Replacing your HVAC components is definitely one of those instances. If you need a new unit, remember that upgrading the entire system together could cut back on a lot of unnecessary costs and hassle — all while giving you the efficiency boost that only matched systems can offer.
