Is it Worth it to Replace Your Air Conditioner and Furnace Together?
Air conditioners don’t work forever, despite the brand or quality. If you’re prepping for air conditioning replacement too? It differs based on your situation.
Here are some aspects to think about, in addition to the advantages of staying away from a mismatched furnace and air conditioner.
Things to Ask When Considering Air Conditioning Replacement and Furnace Replacement at the Same Time
Here are the most important questions to answer before making your decision:
- When was your furnace installed? Furnaces can work up to 20 years, while air conditioners run for about 15 years. If your furnace is past a 15 years old, we recommend replacing it along with your air conditioner. If it’s much less than 15 years old than this, you can probably wait.
- What kind of air conditioner are you getting? A lot of homeowners are swapping out their outdated, single-stage air conditioners for variable-speed styles. This saves energy and increases comfort by working at varying speeds. Air conditioners use the furnace blower to distribute air. So, if you use a single-stage furnace, you’ll have to replace it to get the full comfort and benefits of a matched variable-speed system.
- Can your furnace deliver the right air flow? Your furnace needs to provide the correct amount of air to keep your house comfortable. An updated air conditioner may require a different indoor coil. So, it’s important your furnace is properly sized for the new air conditioner. An Expert technician, for instance one from Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, can determine that static pressure of your system and provide the correct recommendation.
- Is the installation complicated? You’ll make it easier on your tech and your pocketbook if you install both systems simultaneously.
