Unfortunately your furnace isn’t going to last forever, and there comes a time when it needs to be replaced. The unfortunate nature of homeownership is that in a lot of cases appliances all seem to go at once. Since they are generally purchased about the same time, they all have similar expiration periods – which can leave you overwhelmed in trying to decide whether to bite the bullet and replace both your heating and your cooling appliances at the same time.
If you know that your air conditioner is likely the next to fail, then it might be wise to replace them both at the same time. These are some of the times when replacing both your furnace and air conditioning at the same time is a good idea.
Do You Need an Upgrade?
Whether you have done renovations to your home or not, you might want to consider getting a more energy-efficient or a more powerful unit to better heat and cool your home.
If you have both an air conditioner and a furnace and they’re inappropriately sized for your home, then they are both working overtime – which means they are running constantly and sustaining a large amount of wear and tear. If you are going to replace your furnace, then make sure to have your St. Louis HVAC contractor take a look to ensure that your air conditioner is likewise an appropriate size. If it’s not, then not replacing it is costing you a lot.
Your HVAC System Operates Like a Team
If you replace your furnace with a new system, it may not work well with the air conditioner. Since they operate like a team and switch back and forth from one to the other, it is nice if you can get both to match. It also makes it easy to call in for scheduled maintenance. Since most HVAC professionals work with certain manufacturers, if you are going to have them maintained, it is best to have one professional come and do them both at the same time, rather than having to make two separate calls.
A Break on Installation Costs
A lot of the expense of having your heating and cooling systems replaced is in labor costs and making the initial call. If you can have both of them done at the same time, then your HVAC professional is likely to give you a break in labor time, and you will be able to save yourself from an emergency call when the air conditioner does break down. If you choose to have them done at once, you will probably get a better deal all the way around.
Your home’s HVAC system is one of its most expensive assets. Before making the decision to replace the furnace and air conditioning systems, we can consult with you for free to discuss all of your options.
