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

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

Paired design—Your furnace is made to function with a paired air conditioner. This can help better energy efficiency and performance.

Technology upgrades—There have been a lot of recent improvements in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll have these benefits year-round when you update the complete system.

Higher heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency ratings are formed on corresponding equipment performance. While putting in one new unit will improve performance, efficiency will be decreased from what it was engineered to be. And your savings will not be as big as they’d be with a matched system.

Equipment age—If your AC is 10 years old (or older), your heating system is likely just as outdated. Changing both means you’ll enjoy a lot of of years of efficient comfort, no matter the time of year.

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

It would appear installing just a new air conditioner or heating system may feel like a bargain. But it’s not quite a good choice when you consider reduced efficiency.

Installing an entirely new system might be costlier, but you receive much better efficiency, reliability and comfort for long into the future in West Palm Beach.
