When it comes to air conditioner replacement, changing both the indoor and outdoor units at the same time will increase the cost of the project. Despite this, even if one of the units still works, replacing the other too makes sense for several reasons.
Today, Air Products & Services talks about the merits of complete air conditioning installation.
There’s a reason why HVAC manufacturers develop indoor and outdoor units in pairs: sets of matched equipment perform properly when used together. Due to technological advances, refusing to upgrade one half of your old system could limit your product selection because of incompatibility.
Buying the latest residential AC in the name of energy efficiency could be a futile proposition if you don’t replace both units. In HVAC, the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. A new unit with excellent ratings can of course still operate, but its outdated counterpart will most likely drag down the system’s overall performance.
Enjoying Full Warranty Protection
When purchasing new heating and cooling units, getting a brand-new product warranty comes with the territory. This document protects you against equipment defects. Keep in mind, though, that HVAC manufacturers discourage the use of incompatible units. As a result, your warranty may offer only partial coverage since the new unit could underperform due to the HVAC system’s imbalanced configuration.
Generating More Long-Term Savings
Any honest residential and commercial AC maintenance professional will admit that purchasing matched HVAC components is a big investment. However, don’t forget that matched units are less likely to break down prematurely, can perform at optimal levels at all times and will have a warranty with full coverage. All of these benefits can translate to greater savings over time, allowing you to recoup some of your initial expenditure down the road.
