Replacing your furnace or air conditioner can be a huge expense. With the advent of spring, Coon Rapids residents like you may be turning off your furnace and turning on the A/C…well eventually. Whether it’s your furnace that’s giving you the trouble or you need a new air conditioner, you may be tempted to replace the system on the fritz and wait to purchase the other.
But what if we told you that there are benefits to replacing both systems at the same time?
1. Energy Efficiency
Furnaces and air conditioners manufactured today are highly efficient. These new systems use less energy than systems built 10-15 years ago. Replacing both systems at the same time gives your home a boost in comfort and performance, keeping your home warm all winter and cool all summer.
So how long should your current system last? Today’s furnaces typically lasts 15-20 years and air conditioning units last about 12-15 years. If your systems are getting up there in age, it may be time to consider replacing.
2. System Performance
Mixing an old system with new equipment (for example, keeping your old furnace and replacing your A/C) can decrease the overall performance of both systems. Typically, when you replace only a furnace or ac unit, your components won’t match. Your furnace and A/C share the same air handler or blower. Replacing only one can prevent from utilizing the new technology to it’s full potential. Matched systems just operate better together.
3. Botton Line Savings
Purchasing both a furnace and an air conditioner at the same time can save you money. As both of your new systems work at maximum efficiency, you will save on energy bills each month. In addition, you can save by only paying one installation fee instead of two separate installations when you decide to replace your 2nd unit. Another thought on cost savings. Your manufacturers are not obligated to honor warranties when a new unit and a old unit are paired together.
