Why Have a New Air Conditioner Installed Before Winter?

The idea at first might seem a touch absurd: getting a new air conditioner installed in time for winter? It sounds like somebody has confused the seasons, or used “air conditioner” when they meant “heater.” But if you’re a Texas resident reading this, than you know the question isn’t that strange. In San Antonio, December has registered a record high of 90°, and February a record of 100°! Average highs for all the winter months are around the mid-60s. The winter is no season to go unprepared for the heat in Texas—so if it’s time for a new air conditioning installation in San Antonio, TX, you don’t want to wait until summer to start thinking about it.

We’ll list some specific reasons to get a new AC in your home before winter. General Air Conditioning has performed installations for many types of ACs since 1997, and we have experience you can trust when you need the job done right.

Reasons to get a new AC installation before winter starts:

Take advantage of the slow season: Installing any HVAC system in your home requires time to get it done properly. During the fall, most companies have less intense schedules because they answer fewer emergency calls. Even if you think you can get through the winter without an air conditioner (and you probably can’t), you won’t find an easier time to schedule the job than during the relaxed fall days.

Avoid unpleasant surprises from your old system: If you’re considering a new installation at all, then it means you suspect your current system is close to failing. After heavy use during the summer, that aging system will edge closer to shut down. Get the replacement work done now before an unexpected breakdown leaves you sweltering during one of those leftover summer heat waves.

Get all the kinks out of the new system: If you hire professionals with years of training to handle your installation, you shouldn’t experience many troubles with your new system over the winter. But it’s always better to have some buffer time to see that your AC is operating correctly before you really need it—and this is especially true if you’re switching to a new model of air conditioner like a ductless mini split.

In a way, it’s quite wonderful that we have to worry about air conditioning during a Texas winter; not many places in the U.S. are fortunate enough to have these kinds of balmy weather concerns.
