As the second half of summer proves to be hotter than the first in the greater Denver area, you have to ask yourself if your air conditioning is working at full capacity. As we touch the high 90s and even dip into the low 100s, for some homes it’s essential that the air conditioning is working correctly, just like it’s imperative the heater works in the winter. These homes consist of residences that house the elderly and young children who could become very sick due to the heat. If your air conditioning isn’t working properly, then it can make your home very uncomfortable. The same can go for the furnace. We know the last thing on your mind is whether the heater is working correctly – it’s too hot to even think about wearing sweaters – but winter is just around the corner. If you’re struggling with your air conditioner or your heater, then it’s vital that you take the time to fix the problem. This summer is only going to get more hot, so take the time to contact an air conditioning service that will strive to provide you with the comfort you need.
In today’s blog, we’ll be covering whether you should replace your air conditioner and heater at the same time. If you’re struggling with aspects of your air conditioner, then you’ll probably face similar problems with your heater. Your heater and air conditioner are generally linked, so it would make sense to replace one when you have to replace the other. However, if your air conditioner is working perfectly, but your heater you come to find in November is only occasionally working, should you replace the entire system?
The simple answer is yes, you should replace the whole system.
Why You Should
Even though it’s expensive, time consuming, and frustrating, when you replace both systems you’ll have a better chance of staying comfortable year round without worrying about something breaking. Why you can depend on many variables, so we supplied a few for you so you’ll better understand why spending a little more for two systems is better than purchasing one and waiting for the next one to break.
Save Yourself Some Money
The first reason as to why you should replace both systems is because it saves you money. I know it’s hard to believe, but purchasing two new systems will help you keep some cash in your wallet. First, when you purchase two systems you’ll eliminate any repairs and the cost is less when the HVAC service is putting in two systems instead of one. You’ll also save on years to come because you won’t have to worry about buying a new individual system down the line. With a matched system, you’ll save money over time because the systems work better together, saving you money on bills as well.
Save Some Energy
You’ll save money on energy because it’s much more efficient to have two matching systems versus one. The matching systems complement each other, so the energy in your home is saved. Let’s say that your air conditioning system is made 10 years ago and your heating system was built today. The two types of technology work differently. Systems today are much more efficient and use less energy than ones made even 10 years ago. If you look into the SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, you’ll find out the efficiency of the system of a variety of different systems.
