Our answer is, it’s a great method. Here's why.
Paired design—Your furnace is created to function with a paired air conditioner. This may help better energy efficiency and performance.
Technology enhancements—There have been abundant recent improvements in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll get these benefits throughout the year when you upgrade the full system.
Improved heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency rankings are determined on matching system performance. While adding a lone new unit will improve performance, efficiency will be lacking from what it was designed to be. And your savings will not be as much as they’d be with matching equipment.
Equipment age—If your cooling system is 10 years old (or older), your heater is likely just as dated. Replacing both means you’ll have many years of efficient comfort, no matter the time of year.
Updated warranty—A new system also means you’ll receive updated equipment warranties. You’ll get peace of mind knowing the warranty protects your entire system for the same time period.
On the surface, installing just a new air conditioner or heater could seem like a smart decision. But it’s not quite a good choice when you include reduced efficiency.
Getting an entirely new system may be costlier, but you get much more efficiency, reliability and comfort for long into the future in Daytona Beach.
