Upcoming Major Price Increases Means NOW Is the Time to Replace Your AC
All major manufacturers have announced additional price increases on air conditioning (AC) equipment set to occur between the beginning of August and mid-September. In addition to this, the annual price increase on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) products is expected in January.
Our professionals here at Comfort Now by Bob McAllister anticipate a minimum increase of anywhere from 12 to 15 percent before next season. If you arrange to replace your HVAC system before then, you’ll not only spare yourself the headache of dealing with it later—you’ll also save money. Act now and opt for the air conditioner your New Jersey home needs to avoid these industry-wide price hikes.
Let our team of heating and cooling experts discuss the different options available to you. Be sure to order your system before August 20th—or you’ll have to deal with the first round of price increases. We can install it for you now, or we can store it and install it before next spring. Either way, you’ll save money by avoiding the price hike!
Reasons for Replacing Your Air Conditioning System
It’s best to replace your air conditioning system now, especially if you’re experiencing any of the following:
It’s difficult for your air conditioner to combat high temperatures.
Is your air conditioning system unable to keep up with higher temperatures? If your system exerts itself and still fails to efficiently cool your home, it’s not going to get any better next year. Don’t wait to replace your system—upgrade and avoid spending more money later when the price is higher.
Your air conditioner is 10 years old or more.
If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, all warranties have expired. If you’re on a South Jersey Island, it’s at the end of its useful life. You may have a few years left on the mainland, but you could benefit from an upgrade and reduce both your energy usage and monthly expenses.
According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), the air conditioning systems available today use up to 50% less energy than previous models. With reduced energy usage, you’d be doing yourself a favor by upgrading sooner rather than later.
The average life span of an air conditioning system is 15 years or less. Why not enjoy the benefits of a newer system while also avoiding future price increases on air conditioning equipment by upgrading today?
Your system is no longer covered under warranty.
A new warranty will be put in place when you upgrade your system, so you won’t have to worry about expensive repair costs. Replace now so you can also avoid the price increases on air conditioning equipment while also ensuring your system is covered by the enhanced 10 year parts warranties offered by the manufacturers.
You’ve had frequent repairs and the costs are starting to add up.
Continuing to spend money on repairing your current air conditioning system? At some point, if not now, it’s going to make more sense to invest in a new system. A newer model will not only offer far fewer problems but will run more efficiently. Reap these benefits by upgrading your system now and avoiding a higher price for the equipment.
You’re thinking about an upgrade.
Whether you’re planning to remodel your home soon and will be in need of a new air conditioning system or simply would prefer a more energy-efficient model than your current system, go ahead and upgrade now.
You don’t want to wait to upgrade if you’re thinking about it now. If you end up upgrading after further thought in even another month or so, you’ll be dealing with a price increase. Upgrade today!
