Best time of year

Although you may want to devote some time to looking for air conditioner sales, you should consider more than just air conditioner prices. There are other factors to evaluate to ensure that you are getting the best deal possible.

January is considered the best month to buy many appliances because manufacturers are ready to get rid of the inventory they didn't sell over the holidays.

Although most shoppers probably don't realize it, January is also the best month to attend an air conditioner sale. It is well past the spring and summer months when most shoppers are looking for a unit. It is the time when you will usually find the best prices.

You may keep your air conditioner for a long time, so you should try to invest in a quality product. Additionally, you should look for a unit that can meet your home cooling needs without increasing your energy bill too much.


While choosing an air conditioner, note whether or not it will work effectively with the current ductwork in your home. If your ductwork is not an effective match for your new air conditioner, your system may not run correctly.

Seek an estimate from a contractor. When the contractor comes by to inspect your space, he can tell you whether or not your ductwork needs to be replaced. As part of the estimate, he can itemize the work that needs to be done.

In many cases, your contractor can even help you determine how much more efficiently your system will work with the correct ductwork. He may even be able to help you understand how that may affect your cooling costs.

Alternative air conditioner sale

When it comes to air conditioning sales, it isn't just the price of the AC that may be on sale. Many contractors run sales and offer discounts in the off-months as well. Just as you may want to visit an air conditioner sale during the winter, you may also want to look for an HVAC professional in the winter. 

In many cases, your contractor may also be able to help you find a better price on an air conditioner. Many contractors are even able to offer their clients an extra warranty when they buy a cooling system through them.

If you are ready to get an air conditioner estimate, Reply! can help you find a contractor. Once you have a contractor, he will be able to answer all of your questions and direct you toward the best air conditioner sale for your needs.
