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

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

Coordinated design—Your furnace is created to work with a corresponding air conditioner. This can help better energy efficiency and performance.

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

Better 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 engineered to be. And your savings will not be as much as they’d be with a matched system.

Equipment age—If your cooling system is 10 years old (or older), your furnace is likely just as outdated. Changing both means you’ll enjoy lots 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 receive peace of mind knowing the warranty protects your total system for the same period of time.

At first glance, replacing only your cooling system or heating system may feel like a good decision. But it’s not a very good decision when you include reduced efficiency.

Replacing an entire system may be more expensive, but you receive much higher efficiency, reliability and comfort for many years in Savannah.
