When's the Best Time to Purchase an Air Conditioner?

As Winnipegers, we are all looking for a deal. We buy Christmas wrap on Boxing Day for next year, hockey equipment after the season ends, and summer cloths in the fall. There are often deals to be taken advantage of during any market's off-season. So, does this theory apply to the purchase of a new AC? When IS the best time to begin shopping for a new cooling unit?

A lot of people will tell you that winter is the best time to purchase an AC, and summer is the best time to purchase a new furnace. But is this really true for getting the best deal? Actually, the best time to shop for a new AC is during the off-season, not winter. That would be spring.

In the world of HVAC, the off-season refers to the season between winter and summer - spring and fall. In the winter, the market is driven by furnace sales, and in the summer it is driven by air conditioning sales. However, during spring and fall we rely less on our HVAC equipment so that is the best time to shop - not only for promotions, but also for scheduling.

When considering HVAC companies and collecting quotes, remember that a truly professional HVAC company should be able to install heating and cooling products at any time of year - and often offer huge savings by doing both at the same time. Another consideration - never, ever take the lowest bid. We understand your HVAC products are a big investment in your home, but you would be surprised how many times we have picked up new customers because they went with the cheapest company, and we are there repairing or replacing their work. Do your research, ask for referrals and choose a HVAC company with a competitive, middle of the road quote.

A final misconception about the best time of year to shop for an AC, is that quality of service will decrease during peak season. At 4 Seasons that is false! We offer the same level of top-quality service whether we are installing an AC in the middle of summer, or in the middle of winter. Our schedule and how busy we are will never reflect in anything less than stellar service.

The best season for making an AC decision is almost upon us. We welcome the opportunity to give your a quote. At 4 Seasons Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we offer free, in-home, no-obligation consultations and are available for service 24/7. If you are considering a new cooling unit this spring, give us a call at (204) 953-5700, or book an appointment online.
