Usually homeowners are too busy fighting against the eventual reality that they will need a new air conditioner. However, your old unit can only be repaired so many times before it finally stops keeping your home cool and needs to be replaced. If you have made the decision that now is the time you will get a new air conditioning unit, you may wonder when is the best time to have it installed.
The ultimate goal is to have your air conditioner working by the time you need it in the hot summer. So, you may think that a winter or even autumn installation may be best. Unfortunately, this may not be possible.
Air conditioners are designed to run in a very narrow range of temperatures. If it is too cold outside, your air conditioner technician won’t be able to safely turn on your new air conditioning unit for long enough to test that it works. If you can’t test the installation for a few months, you don’t want to have the installation done.
The natural choice may be in the spring. The temperatures are warming each day and it is not yet true hot air conditioning weather. Unfortunately, spring is also when every homeowner calls for air conditioning service, not for installation, but for maintenance. This means it may be tougher to schedule appointments when you want them because every service is busy. However, spring does afford homeowners and their air conditioner technicians ample time to discover and sort out problems before air conditioner season actually hits.
If you want easier scheduling for installation, it may be worth waiting until summer itself. Early summer generally sees the maintenance rush die down without being too unbearably hot for homeowners yet. While air conditioning services may be doing repairs for broken air conditioners, summer typically is not as busy as the springtime is.
