When it comes time to replace your furnace or your AC unit, there is no way around it, the cost can be significant. This is why. Most homeowners do everything in their power to extend the life of their HVAC system with proper maintenance and care. However, no matter how well you maintain your HVAC system, there is going to come a time when it needs to be replaced. If you need to replace your furnace or your AC, it can be tempting to let the other continue to work until it breaks down completely as well. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about why it makes more sense to replace both the furnace and the AC at the same time.
Why You Should Completely Replace Your HVAC System All at Once
Both your furnace and your AC unit make up your HVAC system. When one of them seems to still be working while the other needs to be replaced, you may want to wait it out for the other until it is completely broken down. However, whenever you talk to any HVAC professional, they are going to recommend that you replace them both at the same time. This is because they work together to keep your home comfortable. You won’t experience the efficiency of having both of them replaced when one is old and inefficient. It is also more cost effective to replace them both at the same time.
How Do You Know when It’s Time to Replace Your Furnace & AC Unit
If your HVAC system is at a point it needs to be replaced, you will know it because of these common signs:
– Aging HVAC System: The age of your system is a big indicator for whether or not it needs to be replaced. You can count on your HVAC system lasting anywhere between 15-20 years, on average. If your system is over 10 years old and you are facing a costly repair, you may want to consider replacing rather than repairing because it can be more cost effective in the end.
– Indoor Discomfort: The entire purpose of your HVAC system is to keep your home comfortable no matter the weather outside. If you are finding that your system is having a difficult time keeping up and you are uncomfortable in your home, it may be time to replace the system.
– High Energy Bills: If you see a sudden spike in your energy bill each month, it can be a sign that your furnace and AC need to be replaced. As they get older, they get less efficient and will draw more energy as they work to heat and cool your home.
