Buying a New AC System This Year Could Save You $600-$800
We’ve heard from our suppliers that many air conditioner manufacturers are raising prices come January. These increases could be as much as 8%. Consequently, waiting until next year to upgrade your air conditioner could cost you up to $600-$800 more than you would pay now.
We speculate that these manufacturer price hikes are partly pandemic-related. They are also a standard measure taken to offset the rising costs of labor and materials.
Whatever the reasons, the fact remains that you could save a significant amount of cash by upgrading your AC this holiday season.
Other Benefits to Upgrading Your Air Conditioner This Fall
Federal Tax Credit & Utility Rebates
Besides dodging higher prices, you might be eligible for extra savings when you buy a new AC in 2020. For instance, there is a $300 Federal Tax Credit* available for eligible AC equipment. Since tax season is right around the corner, you won’t have to wait too long to apply your tax credit. While we’re glad to help you determine if your new system is eligible, but we’re not tax advisors. We recommend consulting with your tax professional on how to claim the credit.
Additionally, Florida Power & Light offers a $150 rebate on air conditioners with a 16 or 17 SEER efficiency rating. We’ll factor this rebate into your AC price quote if your desired equipment meets these requirements.
Extended Parts & Labor Warranty on YORK
YORK is one of the few brands whose 2021 pricing is already in effect. However, you still have until the end of the year to take advantage of their impressive 10-year parts and labor warranty. This is the best warranty in the industry right now. A $900 value, the warranty is included with the purchase of a YORK AC system.
Even though you the holiday season may seem to you like a strange time to buy a new air conditioner, it can make logistical sense.
For starters, there are typically shorter wait times for AC installation. Since fall is off-peak season in the HVAC industry, overall demand for new units has decreased. This also means that our install team will have more flexibility, so you can plan in a convenient time for your installation.
Additionally, while we always do our best to minimize downtime during an AC replacement, any unavoidable downtime will be more pleasant due to the lower temperatures and less humidity.
