People USED to say that the only two things you could count on were “you know what” and taxes.
But no one really says that anymore. Why not? Because there are all kinds of other things you can count on in life, such as:
- There won’t ever be fewer TV networks than there are now, only more.
- Sooner or later you’ll have a Facebook account (if you don’t already) or spend way too much time explaining why not.
- The music from your era will always sound better than the music your kids listen to.
- People won’t ever stop talking about the weather.
“Duh”, right? Well, here’s another life certainty that’s actually worth paying attention to: if you live in your home long enough, sooner or later you will need to replace your air conditioning system.
The cold, hard fact is that no AC system was built to last forever. With consistent annual maintenance, you can count on a good 12 -15 years. How will you know when it’s time to replace it, other than keeping track of its birthdays? Actually, there are a number of telltale signs that indicate the end is probably near, including soaring energy costs plus more frequent and costly repairs.
And then there are those folks who choose not to look or wait for a problem before replacing their AC system. They simply choose to do so on their terms, and on their schedule. If that sounds like something you might do, then here’s a helpful tip to the wise: the best time to replace your AC system is in the fall or winter. Here’s why:
- Since demand is lower, you can often work a better deal.
- With cooler prevailing temperatures, you won’t have to wait as long for installation.
- The more time you have to plan a purchase, the more likely you are to acquire exactly the right AC system for your home and budget.
