When substituting the outdoor system, should the indoor unit also be replaced?

Our response is, it’s a great approach. Here's why.

Matched design—Your furnace is created to run with a matching air conditioner. This can help better energy efficiency and performance.

Technology enhancements—There have been abundant recent advances in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll have these perks all year when you improve the complete system.

Better heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency rankings are determined on matched system performance. While adding a single new unit will enhance performance, efficiency will be lacking from what it was designed to be. And your savings will not be as large as they’d be with a matched system.

Equipment age—If your cooling system is 10 years old (or older), your heater is likely just as outdated. Switching both means you’ll receive many years of efficient comfort, whatever the season.

New warranty—A new set of equipment also means you’ll have new equipment warranties. You’ll get peace of mind knowing the warranty protects your whole system for the same time period.

At first glance, replacing only your air conditioner or furnace might appear to be a good decision. But it’s not a very good decision when you factor in decreased efficiency.

Installing an entirely new system might be more expensive, but you get much more efficiency, reliability and comfort for many years in Sharonville.
