Our response is, it’s a smart method. Here's why.
Matched design—Your furnace. This may help improve energy efficiency and performance.
Technology advancements—There have been abundant recent advances in HVAC technology, especially in energy efficiency, air filtration and quiet heating and cooling. You’ll have these perks throughout the year when you improve the full system.
Better heating and cooling efficiency—Efficiency ratings are determined on matched equipment performance. While getting one new unit will enhance performance, efficiency will be lacking from what it was envisioned to be. And your savings will not be as big as they’d be with matching units.
Equipment age—If your cooling system is 10 years old (or older), your heater is likely just as dated. Changing both means you’ll receive lots of years of efficient comfort, regardless of the season.
New warranty—A new set of equipment also means you’ll get new equipment warranties. You’ll have peace of mind when you know the warranty protects your total system for the same time period.
At first glance, getting only a new air conditioner or heating system may feel like a bargain. But it’s not a great decision when you factor in reduced efficiency.
Getting an entirely new system could be costlier, but you receive much better efficiency, reliability and comfort for many years in Dallas.
