Air conditioners don’t run indefinitely, no matter the brand or quality. If you’re getting ready for air conditioning replacement too? It varies based on your situation.
Here are some aspects to think over, as well as the advantages of staying away from a mismatched furnace and air conditioner.
Questions to Ask When Thinking About Air Conditioning Replacement and Furnace Replacement at the Same Time
Here are the most important questions to answer before making your decision:
- How long have you had your furnace? Furnaces can run up to 20 years, while air conditioners work for about 15 years. If your furnace is over a 15 years old, we recommend replacing it along with your air conditioner. If it’s newer than this, you can likely wait.
- What kind of air conditioner are you buying? Lots of homeowners are replacing their dated, single-stage air conditioners for variable-speed upgrades. This conserves energy and increases comfort by operating at several speeds. Air conditioners rely on the furnace blower to distribute air. So, if you rely on a single-stage furnace, you’ll have to get a new one to get the complete comfort and advantages of a matched variable-speed system.
- Can your furnace provide the appropriate air flow? Your furnace needs to circulate the right amount of air to keep your house the right temperature. A modern air conditioner may need a different indoor coil. So, it’s crucial your furnace is correctly sized for the new air conditioner. An Expert technician, such as one from Comfortech Service Experts , can determine that static pressure of your system and provide the right advice.
- Is the installation difficult? You’ll make it easier on your Expert and your bank account if you get new systems at the same time.
Why You Should Get a New Furnace and Air Conditioner Together
If your furnace and air conditioner work together and are properly sized, there aren’t usually any large immediate drawbacks. A mismatched setup is typically temporary until the other system fails. You can skip the temporary repair by replacing your furnace and air conditioner simultaneously. And, you’ll get these rewards:
