Ductless HVAC installation may be cheaper in wintertime. Of course we generally see much less interest in central air conditioning in the wintertime. At that point people are thinking about the need for cool air when it is snowing out, and when it comes to home improvements ductless HVAC installation is not high on anyone’s list right now and for the next several months. Perhaps in a way this is a mistake. If you know you might want ductless next year, now may be the perfect time to install a system.
Ductless HVAC installers may be looking for wintertime business, and willing to discount their usual fees in order to install your system. In addition, manufacturers of ductless may not want to keep last summer’s systems around and may be willing to sell them at reduced prices. Finally, you may be more willing to do a home improvement during a season when you are more likely to be around, less likely to be on vacation, and better able to choose among a bunch of very willing installers.
Installers of HVAC may get busy as the weather warms, and they may get particularly filled up after the first very hot spell of the year. At that point you may find yourself with a wait for the installer of your choice, or with less of a choice overall. They may inadvertently be more tired or in a rush so that they can quickly move on to the next job, while now you will get their full attention – after all, they want you to say how great they did and how much you love your system when the weather does warm up next spring!
So yes, ductless HVAC installation is less common in the winter, but that does not mean you should not pursue one.
Ductless HVAC Installation Tenets
Here are some suggestions related to ductless HVAC installation in winter:
1. If you have already installed ductless air conditioning or heat pumps, tell people the effects of this choice. Spread the word about how well ductless worked last summer, or how quiet it is, or how it managed to reach areas you did not expect it to reach. Let people know what you think of you ductless air conditioner so others with homes that lack ductwork can benefit from ductless HVAC installation.
2. If you have not installed a ductless heat pump or air conditioner yet, think about whether your current system was as effective cooling your home as you’d like last summer. Specifically notice areas that your current system did not reach, or ways that it is not efficient or effective. Imagine the difference that ductless HVAC installation would make.
3. If you’ve only installed only a ductless heat pump and are using it in winter, wonder about the other half of ductless. Notice how your home would be different if you added cooling for next summer, and do some homework here or elsewhere.
4. Finally, no matter whether you are looking into ductless HVAC installation, or even whether you are looking into a conventional system, resolve to be more efficient with your energy use next summer. A highly efficient cooling system is a great start.
Ductless HVAC installation during wintertime can be a great investment in the following summer, allowing you to potentially save money and have the system all ready to go when the temperature starts to warm up. Many people do wait until spring and that makes sense, but in some cases that will cost you more and could lead to longer wait times when installers are busy. We suggest that you think back to the past summer and consider ductless HVAC installation in wintertime.
