One of the most common questions we receive at Tri County Air is:

“When is the best time to buy a new air conditioning and heating system?”

It is simple:

You can keep your family’s piggy bank smiling by replacing your air conditioning and heating system at the end of the year.



  1. The weather at the end of the year is more comfortable, so there isn’t as much demand for replacement. This means lower prices, more rebates, and more flexible installation scheduling for you, our customer.
  2. Manufacturers’ prices often increase at the start of the new year, so purchasing at the end of the year is a great way to ensure you get a better price for the same equipment you would have purchased later anyway.
  3. It often costs more to heat your home than it does to cool your home. If you have an older air conditioning and heating system, you’ll save a significant amount of money on your electric bill by installing a new, more efficient A/C system.

Even if your air conditioning and heating system is still just barely hanging in there, consider replacing it preventatively instead of waiting for it to kick the bucket.

Preventative replacement is always the way to go because you don’t have to experience any “down time”.

You’re even better off if you can replace your air conditioning and heating system preventatively at the end of the year, because you’ll be able to save both time and money.

Unfortunately, if you wait to replace your system until it breaks, chances are it will break in the heat of the summer (when it has to work the hardest) and you may experience a long wait time for installation.

No matter which air conditioning and heating company you choose, the wait is often the largest hurdle to overcome.

No one wants to come home to find their air conditioner doesn’t work in the middle of the summer and then have to wait to have a new system installed. Instead, choose to save time and money by replacing your system preventatively when the savings are the most available – the end of the year.

It is always our pleasure to provide you with the industry’s best air conditioning and heating systems at a price that keeps your family’s piggy bank smiling.
