When Is The Best Time to Buy a New Air Conditioner in Akron/Canton?

The heat island that is known as Akron, OH can be brutal in the summer months. Pavement, brick and concrete draw in the hot summer sun and leave you to retreat to your air conditioner. But what if you don't have an a/c unit to run to?  Now is the time to think ahead for your summer needs.  

The end of winter is the best time for you to purchase a new air conditioner! Why?

  • Retailers have a high supply of air conditioning units during the winter months. When it’s not hot out, there’s a low buyer demand for air conditioning units.
                                                                                                                                                                   
  • Because people aren’t thinking about their summer cooling needs during the winter, HVAC technicians have less work on their schedule.

When you have an overabundance of professionals and products, the smart consumer can get the best deals. 

By late March into April, there will be enough sunny days that people will start buying AC units again. If you wait until the summer to get an air conditioner, retailers might sell out of units, or you’ll end up paying a higher price. And if you wait to schedule an air conditioning repair or a/c replacement during a heatwave and you’ll have to wait longer for your appointment.

Plan Ahead and Save Big on Air Conditioning

It pays to think ahead. Plan out your air conditioning needs by asking yourself a few questions:

  • How many rooms are you looking to cool?
  • How many air conditioning units do you need to cool your residence or commercial business?
  • Is central air (and heat) an option for your residence or business?

A Hair Salon For instance, a man in the middle office of a strip building wanted to open up a hair salon. The space was a thousand square feet. But he called us because he could not cool the space. It was 85 degrees in there because that space was set up for routine office work, and he had seven hair dryers. Now four of those hair dryers put out enough heat to require another ton of air conditioning. Meaning he needed almost double the capacity that he had.
