Why You Need to Replace Your AC Before Summer

February 6, 2019

Spring is just around the corner in Los Angeles, which means that summer isn’t far behind. If you have been thinking about replacing your air conditioning system, now is the best time to look into HVAC system replacement. There’s no need to wait until the summer when you will need your AC most. Instead, take advantage of the benefits of replacing your air conditioner in the spring. Below, we’ll talk more about why you need to replace your AC before summer.

Better Energy Efficiency

The summers in Los Angeles can get downright toasty! And most L.A. homeowners are turning to their air conditioned home to find a little relief from the south California heat. Replacing your AC before you intend to use it most often in the summer allows you to benefit from improved HVAC efficiency all season long.

It’s no secret that a brand new, quality air conditioner is going to be more efficient than your older unit. In fact, you can even choose to purchase a system that has a higher SEER rating to get the best efficiency on the market. With a more energy efficient unit, you can reduce your energy waste during the times when you’re using your AC the most. This helps you save more on energy costs over time (and it’s not too bad for the environment either!)

Lower Repair Costs

If your current air conditioner seems to be on its last leg, then there’s a good chance that you may have experienced increased repair needs in the last few years. Why not get your system replaced before you plan to use it most often? This helps you lower your repair costs during the summer while also avoiding a total system breakdown, which is not only costly but can leave you sweating during the warm summer months.

Many customers ask us when they should replace their system instead of simply repair it. Though there is no one right answer for every homeowner, as a general rule of thumb, you should replace your air conditioner if the repair costs are starting to add up and will soon surpass the cost to replace. Though replacing your HVAC system is a considerable investment, it’s well worth it when breakdowns and malfunctions start to become the norm.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

As HVAC systems get older, they have a harder time maintaining healthy humidity levels and moving clean and fresh smelling air throughout your home. If you notice that this is an issue with your air conditioner, it’s time to replace it. When it starts to warm up in the summer, it will be more important than ever to have proper humidity control. Stale air and increased moisture levels can cause serious indoor air quality issues in your home, which can start to impact your family’s health and comfort.

By getting a new air conditioner before the summer hits, you can benefit from improved indoor air quality. Newer AC units have improved IAQ features that help control humidity and the flow of air throughout your home. Not to mention, newer systems also work with other air quality add-ons that you may opt for like an air purifier or dehumidifier. By installing a new system in the spring, you can benefit from better indoor air quality and comfort before things start to heat up in the summer.

More Time to Research Options

Installing a new air conditioning system is a major investment. We know that it’s an important and tough decision for most Los Angeles homeowners. That’s why we recommend getting your AC replaced before the summer. That way, you aren’t rushing to make a decision on which home comfort system is right for your home. You have time to do your research, compare prices, and find the best equipment for your home comfort needs.

Instead of waiting until your old AC breaks down in the middle of summer, be proactive about your replacement needs. Make a list of what you are looking for in a new air conditioner and consider your budget for replacement. Check out different brands, and take some time to talk to the Brody Pennell team. Our experienced home comfort specialists know a thing or two about air conditioners, and we’d love to work with you to find the right one to fit your needs.

Stay Cool in the L.A. Summer Heat

Perhaps one of the most important reasons to replace your air conditioner before the summer is so that you can stay comfortable during the hottest season of the year. When the temperatures start to rise in L.A., you need a cool and comfortable place to retreat to. And that place should be your home. If you have an old or malfunctioning AC, it may be hard to get your home comfortable and enjoy yourself during the summer.

Summer is when most HVAC companies experience a higher amount of repair calls since most homeowners are cranking up the ACs to avoid the heat. By replacing your air conditioning system in the spring, you can avoid the rush of repair calls, which could delay your AC installation. Instead of being among the homeowners who are experiencing a system breakdown, you could be enjoying the comfort of your own home with a brand new air conditioning system.
