Is it Worth it to Install a New Air Conditioner and Furnace Together?

Air conditioners don’t work for a lifetime, regardless of the brand or quality. If you’re getting ready for air conditioning replacement too? It differs based on your situation.

Here are a few points to consider, as well as the perks of avoiding a mismatched furnace and air conditioner.

Things to Ask When Considering Air Conditioning Replacement and Furnace Replacement at the Same Time

Here are the top questions to answer in advance of making your decision:

  • How long have you had your furnace? Furnaces can last up to 20 years, while air conditioners last for about 15 years. If your furnace is over a 15 years old, we suggest replacing it alongside your air conditioner. If it’s much less than 15 years old than this, you can probably delay it.
  • What model of air conditioner are you buying? Many homeowners are replacing their outdated, single-stage air conditioners for variable-speed models. This uses less energy and maximizes comfort by running at multiple speeds. Air conditioners rely on the furnace blower to move air. So, if you use a single-stage furnace, you’ll have to replace it to enjoy the total comfort and benefits of a matched variable-speed system.
  • Can your furnace deliver the appropriate air flow? Your furnace needs to deliver the correct amount of air to keep your house the right temperature. A new air conditioner may need a different indoor coil. So, it’s critical your furnace is properly sized for the new air conditioner. An Expert technician, like one from Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning, can determine that static pressure of your system and make the correct recommendation.
  • Is the installation tricky? You’ll make it easier on your technician and your pocketbook if you replace both components at the same time.
