If you’re in the market for a new furnace or new air conditioner, you’ve probably been faced with the following dilemma: should you schedule AC and furnace replacement together OR replace the systems as they experience breakdowns?
The biggest concern when replacing only one of your HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems is that the systems will be unmatched. To achieve maximum efficiency and home comfort, your heating and cooling systems should be matched; meaning they should be designed to work together. If you have an old heating system and an old cooling system, you should schedule AC and furnace replacement together.
For example: Installing a high-efficiency air conditioner with an older furnace that has a blower that doesn’t give the rated airflow the AC needs would be a serious mismatch. You can’t expect the AC work properly in that situation.
Many new air conditioners and furnaces communicate instructions and information among themselves—which optimizes heating, cooling, air-flow and humidity control. These components are best matched together as a system to ensure comfort, performance and efficiency.
If both your heating and cooling systems are older, it’s likely best to schedule AC and furnace replacement together to ensure maximum efficiency, home comfort and longevity. Plus, scheduling HVAC installation before a complete breakdown allows you to take advantage of rebates and promotions in addition to having the time to research the best brand for your needs.
