We Know the Best Time of Year to Replace an A/C in Texas

Texas summers have seen some very hot, health-threatening temperatures, making it dangerous to even step outdoors. Residents rely on their air conditioning to, not only stay cool, but also to stay healthy. As summer approaches, it offers little comfort, as the Austin area will continue to see high temperatures this year. With that in mind, you may need to seek a professional A/C tech to check your unit for efficiency. Unfortunately, you don’t get prior notice before your A/C malfunctions, so be proactive about it. Here’s why you should find out if your system needs a tune-up, minor repairs or even a complete air conditioning replacement.

When Should I Get My A/C Replaced?

We consulted Science Direct to find the best time of year to replace an air conditioner. With summertime winding down, you probably have several fun activities planned to end the season in style. But air conditioning replacement may be more important than any of them. The end of summer is the best time to replace your air conditioning or HVAC unit, considering the following benefits you get in Texas this time of year:

  1. Greater Comfort: Replacing your air conditioning now will ensure you have greater comfort for when those hot temperatures prove too much. Newer cooling systems on the market today have greater cooling capabilities that will provide cool air to the areas of your home that need it the most.
  2. Improved Energy Efficiency: If  your system is older, it’s more likely to waste energy when trying to produce cool air. Older units (your A/C and your Heating units) get less energy efficient as it nears the end of an average lifespan. This means you’ll have a higher energy bill every month. A higher costs on bills, in addition to high temperatures isn’t exactly an ideal way to spend the summer.
  3. Improved Indoor Air: The heat isn’t the only thing you need to worry about at this time of the year; it’s also the humidity. A new system will be much more effective in eliminating any humidity from your indoor air, allowing for everyone in your household to breathe a little easier. Furthermore, the use of A/C, to reduce indoor air pollution has been directly linked to improved cardiovascular health*.
