It may seem crazy to plan an AC installation service in Studio City, CA before summer even arrives, but it is actually the best time to do it. While everyone is going along with their day, you will be getting your air conditioner installed and have it fully functional the second the temperature rises past your preference. Everyone else will be calling every nearby service and will get waitlisted days or weeks depending on their business levels, which will be dramatically higher than in the offseason.
When Should I Buy a New Air Conditioner?
The answer to this is two pronged; you should ideally buy a new air conditioning unit when everyone wants a furnace (in the winter, which is offseason for AC units) and only when you really need it. You may think that your air conditioner needs to be retired, but calling one of our professionals to your home for a diagnostic is always a great idea. The pros will know what needs to be done if the unit is fixable. Also, professionals will give you an unbiased opinion on whether a repair or a new unit is necessary because most service centers do not sell new units.
If your unit is fixable we can proceed with a repair that will get you by until the next summer, at the very least. At the same time, we will give you an idea of what to look for in a new unit and about how much you can expect to pay on average. We like this option the best because it saves you a little time to save the money for a new unit without racking up credit card debt. It is inevitable that a patch job won’t do the trick at some point. That is when we will suggest purchasing a new air conditioner.
Do I Need a Top of the Line Model?
The short answer is no, but what needs to be figured out is the needs of your home. If you have a full house and can afford to get a whole house air conditioning system, this is the best option. A young couple looking to keep the bedroom cold but not the rest of the house can easily get by with a cheaper floor unit or window unit. This option may not be as ideal, seeing as the rest of the house will still be hot, but if you’re young that money saved on energy can be better spent saving towards something bigger like your future children’s college funds. Having the best and fanciest air conditioner out may sound appealing as well, but go back to the requirements of your home. If it isn’t necessary, go with a solid model with a proven track record instead of the one with all the bells and whistles.
