Reasons To Replace The A/C & Furnace At The Same Time
Should I replace my furnace and air conditioner at the same time?
Heating And Cooling System Age And Condition
The age and condition of your furnace and air conditioner are important factors. If either is giving you problems frequently or is 10 years or older, it might be time to consider replacement options. If both of your units are old or breaking down often it makes sense to replace both.
Time Saved On HVAC Replacement
Why go through the process of deciding on an air conditioner, filling out paperwork, having it installed, just to turn around in 6 months to replace your furnace? You can save yourself a lot of time and energy by just replacing both at the same time. In many cases, you can get your furnace and air conditioner installed in one day!
Money Saved On HVAC Installation
You’ll save money when you replace both your furnace and air conditioner at the same time instead of separately. Installing both together is more economical than installing just one or the other. You’ll save on labor expenses by installing at once.
Efficiency Gained On Heating And Cooling System
A mismatched system (mixing old technology with new) can decrease system performance and comfort. It is recommended to replace both systems at once to maintain maximum efficiency and longevity.
While your air conditioner and furnace are completely different units and typically function at different times of the year, they do use the same components (such as the blower inside of the furnace) that you may not realize. A new air conditioner, with new technology, may not communicate properly with an old furnace with outdated technology. In many cases, a furnace that is so old (15+ years) will not even be compatible to operate with a new air conditioner.
For the benefit of our customers, we like to explain why it is important to consider the replacement of both systems when it is time to make the upgrade on your heating or cooling equipment.
