After contacting a cool company, homeowners may have some questions. Should a cooling company replace the air conditioner and furnace simultaneously? First, having a cooling company replace an air conditioner and a furnace is expensive. However, it is completely necessary and here’s why:

Your air conditioner will perform more efficiently if your furnace is replaced at the same time!

A furnace contains a blower or fan. The fan pushes the conditioned air throughout a home. Homeowners need to make sure the blower, or fan is creating the appropriate airflow for specific parts to perform efficiently (the evaporator coil and the heat exchanger). An air conditioner uses the blower or fan motor as well. Therefore, in order for the air conditioner to truly perform efficiently, the heating system should be replaced simultaneously.

Your air conditioner and furnace will be a matched system.

Your air conditioner and furnace will perform at the same level of efficiency when they are replaced together. For example, if your air conditioner is replaced and your furnace is not, both systems will not perform at their highest efficiency. Additionally, having an unmatched system can cause problems or failures.

There are specific times you should replace your air conditioner and furnace at the same time.

If your furnace is over 15 years old. Although many furnaces last 15-30 years, some furnaces need to be replaced after the 15 year mark. If you purchased a high-efficiency air conditioner. If you don’t want to worry or stress about repairs and replacements for some time.

They install everything properly and ensure you receive the most out of your product. So, although HVAC systems and the work performed on them can be costly, it’s worth it.
