One of the best and most frequent questions our technicians receive in the field is “When is the best time to purchase an air conditioning system?” If you’re in the market to replace your Flower Mound air conditioning system, you might be tempted to hold off on investing in new HVAC equipment until your A/C is on its last legs or for the change of seasons and extreme temperatures. However, waiting for either of those things to come to pass will likely work against you. The key to receiving the best price for a new A/C system in Lantana and beyond is to understand the cyclical nature of the industry.
It would be easy to think that, because Lantana HVAC companies are busy as bees installing new systems in the Summer, it’s the best time for competitive prices, but that often isn’t the case. In our last Blog entry, we introduced you to the so-called “Shoulder Seasons” – those times of the year edging into the more demanding Summer and Winter months for HVAC companies such as Southern Comfort Mechanical. In Texas, those seasons are late Autumn and early Spring.
Why, you may ask? These times of the year are beautiful – perfect for getting out of doors, opening up your home for fresh breezes and saving on your energy bills. Simply put, it’s not a time of the year you’re completely reliant upon air conditioning to regulate the temperature of your home. It’s also when your Southern Comfort Mechanical Technician has the most time to spend with you to examine your options when buying a new A/C system. During peak seasons, that time is at a premium and ultimately you end up competing not for a better price but for the first available system installation date for your Corinth area home.
In early Spring and late Fall, the industry itself experiences lower volume. The various manufacturers offer promotional sales and preseason discounts during those times to engage consumers year round. This means Southern Comfort Mechanical can work with you to select a quality system that is optimized specifically for your Flower Mound home at a price that can’t be matched during the peak Summer and Winter months. In other words, the best time to purchase is when you can take your time and make an educated purchasing decision with the help of qualified professionals.
