Temperatures are cooling down as we enter November and head toward winter. If you are considering replacing your old heating system, the fall is one of the ideal times to arrange to have the job done. It’s much better to have a new furnace ready to go to work when the chilly weather hits than to scramble to arrange it in the middle of winter.
However, this might be a good time to do more than replace the just the furnace. A typical heating system replacement also includes replacing the air conditioning components at the same time the furnace is replaced. Typically the heating components and the cooling components of a system are of the same age. When one component in the system fails or needs to be replaced it is better to replace both at the same time. There are two reasons to consider replacing both components at same time. New equipment is far more efficient than older equipment and a matched system will provide more comfort and higher efficiency. Replacing the whole system is more cost effective in labor than replacing a single piece of equipment.
But perhaps most importantly, when you have the whole HVAC system replaced at once, the professional installation technicians will see that you have a matched system. Although the AC and furnace perform different jobs, they share many of the same components through the air handler. A poorly matched air conditioner and heater combo will make for an inefficient system with a decreased lifespan.
