Advantages of Furnace and AC Replacement Together
When your heating or cooling system breaks down and needs to be replaced, you might be surprised to hear your HVAC technician recommend furnace and AC replacement at the same time. While it can be a financial investment to replace both units, replacing both will increase your home comfort, the longevity of both units and help decrease monthly energy bills.
To achieve maximum efficiency and home comfort, both the furnace and air conditioner should be matched — designed to work together and be in the same efficiency range. If one of your systems break down and the other is old and inefficient, you should schedule AC and furnace replacement together.
In many home comfort systems, the central air conditioner and furnace both use the same blower to circulate air throughout the home. For this reason, if you replace an air conditioner and leave the old furnace, you’ll often run into problems because the new AC unit is relying upon the old furnace blower to distribute air.
If your systems match, they work as a pair. Introducing new technology with old technology can decrease efficiencies. It will also increase the longevity of your systems if they’re working together, rather than against each other.
If your HVAC system is old and one part of it breaks down before the other, it’s often best to schedule AC and furnace replacement together. This will help ensure maximum efficiency, home comfort and longevity.
