Your home’s heating and cooling units are significant investments. They are a major responsibility, always needing care and maintenance. While it may not seem to be the best idea for your wallet to replace both at the same time, the benefits outweigh the price tag. Still not sure? Here are some of the best reasons to replace your furnace and air conditioner together.
Minimizing Overall Cost
With each new piece of technology you purchase, you have to pay for installation for each one which can end up being a significant money vacuum. If you replace both at the same time, you are cutting out the middleman and only paying for one installation instead of 2.
More Efficient Technology
Newer technology is less prone to requiring repairs and routine maintenance. More modern systems have better SEER ratings and are much more efficient than the methods that were manufactured more than 15 years ago. If you replace one unit that has a better SEER rating and keeps the older unit which has a lower SEER rating, the older unit will not be as capable, and your hydro bills will be just as high as they were before having that new and more efficient furnace or air conditioner.
Differences in Technology
Both your heating and cooling systems use the same blower for your whole house. If you replace only one of them and leave an older one for a few years, you will be severely hampering your HVAC unit’s performance. Matching both your heating and cooling systems will allow both to operate at maximum performance and efficiency and save you money.
Increase to your Home Value
Replacing both your furnace and air conditioner at once will also add a large amount of value to your home as it means the buyers of your home do not have to pay for a new system upon moving into their new house. This really increases your resale value and buyer interest.
Summer in Windsor/Essex is notorious for being extraordinarily humid and dry. If you do not have a functioning air conditioner, now is the time to invest in one. It is critical to remember that while looking for an air conditioner, you look for one that:
- Saves you energy
- Efficient Cooling capabilities
- Above-average airflow capabilities
- Remote control access
- Programmable thermostat
