Should I Get a New Air Conditioner and Furnace Together?

Air conditioners don’t run forever, despite the brand or quality. If you’re getting ready for air conditioning replacement in Oklahoma City, you may be wondering—should you also request furnace replacement too? It varies based on your situation.

Here are a few aspects to think about, as well as the perks of staying away from a mismatched furnace and air conditioner.

Questions to Ask When Thinking Over Air Conditioning Replacement and Furnace Replacement at the Same Time

Here are the most important questions to answer in advance of making your decision:

  • How old is your furnace? Furnaces can work up to 20 years, while air conditioners run for about 15 years. If your furnace is over a 15 years old, we suggest replacing it along with your air conditioner. If it’s newer than this, you can probably wait.
  • What model of air conditioner are you installing? A lot of homeowners are getting rid of their dated, single-stage air conditioners for variable-speed upgrades. This conserves energy and increases comfort by working at multiple speeds. Air conditioners use the furnace blower to distribute air. So, if you have a single-stage furnace, you’ll have to get a new one to realize the full comfort and benefits of a matched variable-speed system.
  • Can your furnace provide the correct air flow? Your furnace needs to circulate the proper amount of air to keep your house comfortable. An updated air conditioner may call for a different indoor coil. So, it’s crucial your furnace is appropriately sized for the new air conditioner. An Expert technician, like one from Gordon's Service Experts, can determine that static pressure of your system and make the right suggestion.
  • Is the installation tricky? You’ll make it easier on your Expert and your budget if you replace both components simultaneously.
