One question commonly heard before a Heating And Cooling Installation in Urbana is “Should the AC and furnace be replaced at the same time?” While it seems sensible, it’s not always necessary. Here, homeowners can learn which factors make simultaneous replacement a wise decision.
Both Components are Old
The average AC unit’s life expectancy is 10-15 years, while furnaces last about 20 years. If both components are more than 15 years old, replace the AC first and then replace the furnace once it reaches the end of its lifespan. However, if both parts are over 20 years old, make plans for replacement as soon as possible.
Buying a High-Efficiency Air Conditioner
If a homeowner buys a cooling system that’s more technologically advanced than the furnace, it may be best to buy an updated heating unit as well to ensure compatibility and efficient operation.
When the Components are Hard to Access
If the home’s HVAC system is in an inaccessible part of the home, or if the customer lives in a rural, out-of-the-way location, they should consider replacing both parts of the system at the same time. Both of these factors can affect the price of Heating And Cooling Installation in Urbana because of the job’s increased difficulty.
If Retirement is Coming
Local HVAC repair companies receive many calls from those entering retirement, as well as those who have already retired and want to get their homes ready for a long period of living on a fixed income. By replacing an old, outdated unit before retirement, customers can control their budgets and live as comfortably as possible.
If the Home is to be Sold
While a fresh coat of paint can increase a home’s curb appeal, there are other ways to make a home more appealing to potential buyers. Replacing the home’s old HVAC system with a new, more efficient one can give the current owner a strong selling point when it’s time to move on.
