Our answer is, it’s a great idea. Here's why.
Paired design—Your furnace. This may help improve energy efficiency and performance.
Technology advancements—There have been a lot of recent improvements in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet operation. You’ll receive these perks year-round when you improve both units.
Higher heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency rankings are based on matched system performance. While putting in a single new unit will result in better performance, efficiency will be decreased from what it was envisioned to be. And your savings will not be as large as they’d be with matching units.
Equipment age—If your cooling system is 10 years old (or older), your furnace is likely just as old. Replacing both means you’ll enjoy lots of years of efficient comfort, whatever the time of year.
New warranty—A new system also means you’ll receive new system warranties. You’ll receive peace of mind knowing the warranty defends your total system for the same amount of time.
On the surface, installing just a new cooling system or heater can feel like a good decision. But it’s not a great bargain when you consider lower efficiency.
Installing an entirely new system might be costlier, but you receive much higher efficiency, reliability and comfort for years to come in Melbourne.
