Your HVAC system is by far one of the, if not the most costly and largest appliance in your home. Though the lifespan of the average HVAC system can be well over 30 years, for many homeowners there will undoubtedly come a time when your system needs replacement. One of the most common questions homeowners ask is “do I need to replace my indoor and outdoor HVAC units at the same time or can I replace one and then the other at a later time?”
The answer to that all-important question is that you should absolutely replace both your indoor air handler and the outdoor heat pump of your HVAC system at the same time. Though it can be somewhat costly to replace both units at the same time, there are a variety of reasons why this is the absolute best approach.
First and foremost, systems that are equally matched will always perform better. When HVAC systems are designed, they are designed to work together. A matched system works together to generate peak levels of efficiency and system performance. If you were to replace an indoor air conditioning unit without replacing and installing the matching outdoor unit, it would actually still work but you end up jeopardizing the dependability and endurance of the HVAC unit and minimizing the system’s overall efficiency.
Secondly, technology has desperately changed over the years. Over the last 20 plus years the advances in HVAC technology have presented with greater performance levels for both indoor and outdoor units. Whether air handling performance, noise levels, or even filtering of debris, today’s units far out perform HVAC units of the past. With that said, replacing both units at the same time will ensure that your HVAC system is performing at peak levels and operating on the most advanced technology available to provide ideal comfort for your home and family.
Another important reason to invest in both units at the same time is that doing so will actually save you a good deal of money in the long run. An unmatched system presents with poor efficiency and performance, which will obviously end up costing more money on your energy and utility bills. For the most part, HVAC systems are installed as a set or pair which means that when one needs replacement chances are the other has the same need as well. It makes good sense, therefore, that when you choose to replace both HVAC units at the same time you end up with a more efficient, reliable, dependable and higher performing system for a much longer period of time.
Finally, let’s not forget that when you invest in new units you are investing in new warranties including manufacturer’s warranties and service guarantees. There are instances where a manufacturer will not offer full warranty coverage if an air conditioner is not coupled with a matching outdoor heat pump. With that said, when investing in matching HVAC units your mind is at ease knowing that your entire HVAC system is fully covered over the same period of time.
