Is it Smart to Simultaneously Replace your Air Conditioner and Furnace?
Replacing an air conditioner or furnace are typically expensive home investments. Regardless of this pricy expenditure, it is common for HVAC companies to recommend replacing your air conditioner and furnace simultaneously. At Red Line Heating and Cooling, we strive to help our customers make sound, economically logical decisions. In our experience, it is normally unnecessary to replace your air conditioner and furnace at the same time. In fact, in some circumstances replacing your air conditioner and furnace simultaneously may be harmful to your wallet, and your HVAC system.
With that said, there are three keys circumstances when you should replace your air conditioner and furnace at the same time.
One of the most obvious reasons for purchasing both of these appliances simultaneously is if you live in a remote, hard to reach location. Living in a rural area can make it difficult to set home appointments and find repair companies. If this describes your property’s location, it may be wise to purchase your heating and cooling appliances together.
High Efficiency Air Conditioner
A high efficiency air conditioner requires it to work well with your furnace. While an experienced, skilled technician, can ensure your current furnace works with your high efficiency air conditioner, it is a difficult task. If you are in need of replacing both of these appliances, it is wise to do so together, simultaneously.
Age of HVAC System
If both your air conditioner and furnace are nearing the end of their life expectancy, it may be convenient to replace both appliances together. Most furnaces are expected to last 20-30 years, and air conditioners typically last 10-15 years. Because these appliances vary exponentially in their life expectancy, it may be difficult to replace them both at the same time.
