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

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

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

Technology upgrades—There have been many recent advances in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet running. You’ll get these benefits year-round when you upgrade the whole system.

Improved heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency ratings are based on matching equipment performance. While getting a single new unit will result in better performance, efficiency will be lacking from what it was envisioned to be. And your savings will not be as much as they’d be with a matched system.

Equipment age—If your AC is 10 years old (or older), your furnace is likely just as dated. Changing both means you’ll enjoy a lot of of years of efficient comfort, regardless of the season.

Updated warranty—A new set of units also means you’ll have up-to-date equipment warranties. You’ll get peace of mind knowing the warranty defends your total system for the same amount of time.

On the surface, replacing only your AC or heater may seem like a good decision. But it’s not a great decision when you factor in reduced efficiency.

Replacing an entire system may be costlier, but you receive much better efficiency, reliability and comfort for long into the future in Savannah.
