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

Our reply 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 enhance energy efficiency and performance.

Technology advancements—There have been abundant recent advances in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll get these advantages throughout the year when you update the complete system.

Better heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency levels are determined on matched system performance. While adding a lone new unit will result in better 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 heating system is likely just as dated. Changing both means you’ll enjoy many years of efficient comfort, whatever the season.

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

At first glance, replacing only your air conditioner or furnace might appear to be a smart decision. But it’s not a great decision when you include decreased efficiency.

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