The beginnings of Fall mean that you no longer have to crank up your air conditioner and you do not have to worry about your furnace yet. Therefore, furnaces and air conditioners are the last things on your mind. However, this is one of the best times to invest in a new air conditioner or furnace.
Why? Because since it is not the middle of July or below freezing in December many people do not think about a heating or cooling unit since it is not necessary. This means that seasons such as the beginnings of Fall are slow for many heating and cooling companies. Prices may be lower since the businesses will not be as busy.
Also, it is possible you will be able to pick a more convenient time for an installation since the days will not be as booked. Finally, a peace of mind can come from having your new furnace installed and ready to go before the chill of winter swoops in.
When thinking of buying a new unit you should think about when to buy it and remember slower seasons such as the end of Summer/beginning of Fall, it could save you some money. Even if you are not immediately thinking that it is time to buy a new furnace or air conditioner since it is still working for now, this time of year is a good time to consider whether or not you will need one soon.
