We’re officially in the first weeks of the fall season, and that means gradually lowering temperatures. It begins with colder nights, and before long, the days will be cold too! I’m shivering just thinking about it. So why would we want to think about air conditioners at a time like this?
After all, we just got done with summer! Well, you can just think of us as being early for next year. There are a few good reasons why now is a good time to think about air conditioning, and we’ll go into more details down below.
Think About How Your AC Performed This Summer
Before you forget about it, while it’s still fresh in your mind, take some time to evaluate how well your AC performed this summer. If you have a smart thermostat, this will be an easy task—you can look at your usage history and see it plainly laid out in front of you. Otherwise, take a look at all of your energy bills over the last few months. Did your AC perform better or worse than you expected or budgeted for?
Part of maintaining HVAC efficiency is by setting your financial goals and trying to meet them. If you’re not happy with the results, try to find out why that is. Whether your AC is declining due to age, or if you’ve noticed that one room of your home is always hot no matter what, these are all things that can be fixed with the right AC service.
Start Doing Your Research Now
No one likes shopping for a new air conditioner in the middle of the heat. If your AC were to break down completely during the hottest part of the season, you’re much more likely to make an unwise purchase for your replacement AC. With the HVAC technician already at your home and your family suffering in the heat, it’s easy to commit to a purchase right away.
Of course, this isn’t how large purchases should be made—we encourage all of our potential customers to do plenty of research into the AC systems that will bring them the best comfort at the lowest operating costs. There’s no better time to do that than in the fall and winter, long before you desperately need air conditioning installation in Santa Fe, NM.
It’s Easier to Get AC Service in the Cold Season
No matter what season we’re in, we receive countless calls for broken heaters and broken air conditioners. We want to get to everyone as soon as we can, but that means someone has to be at the bottom of our list. Again, you don’t want to be in this position in the middle of the summer when your AC suddenly stops working. There’s no rule that says you can’t get your AC maintenance, replacements, or installations done during the cold season. Plan ahead and save yourself a huge headache later on.
