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

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

Matched design—Your furnace is created to work with a matching air conditioner. This may help enhance energy efficiency and performance.

Technology upgrades—There have been a lot of recent advances in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll receive these perks year-round when you upgrade the full system.

Better heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency rankings are formed on matching system performance. While installing one new unit will enhance performance, efficiency will be lower from what it was engineered to be. And your savings will not be as much as they’d be with matching equipment.

Equipment age—If your air conditioner is 10 years old (or older), your heating system is likely just as old. Switching both means you’ll enjoy lots of years of efficient comfort, regardless of the time of year.

Updated warranty—A new set of equipment also means you’ll receive up-to-date equipment warranties. You’ll receive peace of mind when you realize the warranty defends your whole system for the same amount of time.

On the surface, getting only a new air conditioner or heater might feel like a good decision. But it’s not a very good choice when you consider decreased efficiency.

Getting an entirely new system could be costlier, but you get much more efficiency, reliability and comfort for many years in Kingston.
