4 Tips to help you make a smart AC System buy


When you invest in an AC system for your home, you want it to work well and last a long time. With careful consideration during the research and buying process, you can make sure that you make a smart AC system buy instead of being upset with your purchase. Today we’ll share with you some helpful tips so that you find the air conditioning replacement system that you need:

  • Buy from an air conditioning installation professional 
  • Don’t focus on price only
  • Buy an AC system at the right time
  • Look for additional savings

Buy From an HVAC Professional

You could do your shopping alone, but it can be very overwhelming. Instead, it’s a great idea to get an expert involved. When you buy your next ac system from an HVAC professional, they will be able to advise you on the best models. They have years of experience and have worked with many brands. A pro knows the best size system and can choose a more efficient model for your home. They can even handle your air conditioning installation so there is less to worry about.

Don’t Focus Only on Price

While price can be important, you don’t want to make the wrong choice by trying to go with a cheaper system. Having a budget in mind is a good idea, but be open to buying a higher price model if it has more features or values that make sense for your needs. Remember that the cheapest models may cause a lot more problems in the future, which means more money wasted down the road. Always look at the total value that is being offered before buying.

Buy at the Right Time

If you have some flexibility on when you replace your HVAC system, timing out when you buy can benefit you greatly. The best time to buy an air conditioning system is in the spring and fall. These are the offseason months and you can get a better buy. Your local HVAC company may offer additional discounts on one of their top models, allowing you to save big and get more value out of your system.

Look for Additional savings

You may be able to get an even better deal on a high-quality HVAC system. Some HVAC companies offer special financing to help make the expense more manageable. You may also notice some manufacturers offering rebates and other incentives. Keep an eye open for these extra ways to save so that you can get the best possible unit without overspending.
You can find the perfect air conditioning system for your home needs. If you’re in need of a replacement AC system and don’t know where to start, Nice Heating and Air Home Services can help.

Customers With a NICE Experience

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

“My technician arrived promptly at our appointed hour. He repaired a dirty and non-working gas fireplace. In addition, he found a small gas leak on our furnace line. Overall, exceptional service and quality work. I highly recommend their HVAC service.”

Kenny D.

“They treat customers like a valuable asset, not like a number. Business the old-fashioned way, that will never go out of style.”

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
