Now Is the Best Time for a New AC

Yep, we’re serious. It’s not that hot out yet, and we’re not even into June yet, so why the heck would now be the best time for an air conditioner installation in Cedar Rapids?

Well, some of you might have already guessed this, but it can be more difficult and expensive to install an AC during the hottest days of the summer. Customers might be too hot and inconvenienced to do their research and find the right system or professional installation team that fits their home and preferences. It’s no fault of their own, but it’s a reality of this kind of purchase in an industry that depends on the local climate.

Right now, while temperatures are still slightly mild, let’s talk about how you could make some serious steps toward installing a new air conditioner and staying more comfortable (and efficient) this summer.

Shopping When “Overheated.”

Shopping for a new air conditioner on the hottest day of the year, when your old system finally calls it quits, is a recipe for disaster. We’re not just talking about a little nuisance here, we’re talking about the potential for paying thousands more or hiring an untrained amateur or family member to install your system because it’s such a last minute decision.

According to Forbes, “tasks requiring attention, memory and reasoning can be negatively affected when the brain is overheated.” Temperatures above 90 degrees can often make us more irritable and impairs our ability to make good decisions. But when investing in a new air conditioner, you want to make sure your decision is a good one.

The purchase of an air conditioner is a big one, and it involves a lot of money. Getting this done early in the season, like during the end of spring, is a good way to make sure you’ve got a level head and a calm demeanor so you can hope to save as much money as possible. Your wallet will thank us later!

The Scheduling, Timing, and Pricing

Inventory sells quickly when temperatures get hot. A lot of people decide last minute that they need to replace their old air conditioners, or invest in a new one for their property. This isn’t anyone’s fault, but it’s a good reason for smart customers to get ahead of the curve.

If you were to schedule an AC installation now, you’d have your pick of scheduling, timing, and even better pricing because of our larger stock on hand. But as we get through summer, inventory dwindles and our technicians get swamped with service calls. This makes things a lot more complicated.

Don’t worry, even when it’s hot we’ll still do our best to accommodate and try to help you with a new system set-up. But we wanted to be honest and realistic with how these things sometimes play out.

The Early Bird Gets the Worm

This saying has some truth to it! Those who start evaluating their home comfort now will get a better deal when the summer finally hits. Don’t let those hot temperatures surprise you!

Plus, investing in a new air conditioner now will ensure that you have better efficiency when hot temperatures really come full swing, so you’ll save money every time your system turns on to cool you down.
