Sahara Air’s Thoughts on Las Vegas Air Conditioning Replacement
Lately, I’ve been getting the same question asked to me by friends, family members, and clients… “When is the best time to replace my air conditioner?” Las Vegas air conditioning replacement can seem like a big undertaking…and not one that you should put off.
Simple answer: You should replace your air conditioning system as soon as you can afford it.
Let me explain in a little more detail. One of the biggest misconceptions about replacing air conditioning systems is that if you wait until the fall or winter, you can get a discount for doing the work in the off season.
When Do the Prices of Air Conditioners Go Down?
Reality Check… Prices rarely ever go down. The price of steel, copper, aluminum, and refrigerant have been increasing steadily for years. When the price of the commodities used to manufacture air conditioning systems goes up, the price you pay goes up, too.
Here are some other examples of prices that affect how much you pay for your air conditioning system to be replaced: fuel prices, health insurance prices, utility prices, payroll tax increases, new government regulations, and environmental regulations. Everywhere you look, with the exception of housing, prices are skyrocketing! We won’t even go into how often the power company raises its rates.
Las Vegas Air Conditioner Replacement Saves Money
With all the uncertainty in the economy right now, replacing your air conditioning system is one of the best possible investments to make for your home. Most homeowners are saving as much as 60% on their power bills in the summer by having a new, high efficiency air conditioner installed.
Before investing in a new air conditioning system, make sure to have a whole home analysis performed by a licensed and reputable professional to ensure that you understand exactly what to expect when replacing the system. This is the best way to protect your investment and to start saving money today.
