Furnace & Air Conditioner Replacement: Benefits of Doing Them Together

If your HVAC system is no longer heating and cooling your home adequately, it might be time for an upgrade. When the time comes to pull the trigger on a furnace or air conditioner replacement, it’s often beneficial to replace both of your systems at the same time.

Is it time to replace your heating and cooling systems?
Before you decide to replace one or both of your systems, you’ll need to determine whether it’s time to replace them or not. On average, HVAC systems last for 10-15 years, but it depends on how much they get used and how they’ve been maintained over the years. Aside from age, there are a few ways you can tell that it’s time to find a replacement for your furnace and air conditioner, including:

Weird sounds: If you start hearing whirring, clunking, and banging sounds coming from either your furnace or air conditioner, it’s an indication that something is wrong, and it could also mean that you’ll need to replace your system soon.

Increased utility bills: Seeing minor increases in your monthly utility bills is normal, but if your bills are increasing well beyond the standard price per kilowatt-hour increases, then odds are your system is inefficient and running more than it needs to.

Constant cycling: It’s natural for your heating and cooling systems to cycle off and on periodically throughout the day, but if it’s happening every couple of hours, something isn’t right. The problem could be caused by a number of issues, but it could be a sign that it’s time to replace your HVAC system.

Why is it a good idea to replace your furnace and AC at the same time?
There are quite a few advantages to completing an air conditioner replacement at the same time as your furnace replacement. First and foremost, you’ll notice substantial savings on your monthly bills if you choose to replace both systems simultaneously because both of your systems will be more efficient. Having both units replaced at the same time will also save you money on the installation costs in terms of labour because the HVAC technicians can replace both of the systems in one go. Although it’s not always the case if you plan ahead and start looking for replacement units for your furnace and air conditioner, you can take advantage of some excellent deals.
