Most people do not choose to replace their air conditioning systems until they have nearly broken down. At this late point in the year, you may be tempted to run your AC into the ground until the end of the cooling season, and wait to replace it until the following year. But we think this is a mistake. For the most part, replacing an air conditioner before it breaks down (if possible) and at your earliest convenience is the best choice. Learn why from our short guide.
You never know when you may need it
Los Angeles weather can be very unpredictable. The hottest of days is the time that your air conditioner is most likely to give out completely. At this point, a lot of people in your area may also need AC services, so a technician could be unable to arrive right away. Besides, trying to replace an air conditioner suddenly is a hassle because you cannot give yourself enough time to truly consider your options and decide which efficiency rating you want.
Give yourself time
Scheduling air conditioning replacement services as early on as possible gives you time to really think about your options, considering things that go beyond the initial budget, like size, efficiency rating, and even the type of AC system you choose. For example, you may decide to install a heat pump over a traditional AC system. This unit is able to run in reverse, providing efficient air conditioning and heating to a home.
Giving yourself time to prepare for an appointment also allows you time to ensure you’ve chosen a quality company for the work. Check online reviews and ask your technician questions about the systems they install and service. Make sure a technician spends time before the installation to measure your home and decide on which unit is the right fit.
