It’s Time to Replace Your Old Furnace and Air Unit with HVAC System

Eventually, every old furnace and air unit must be replaced by an air conditioning installation service with a new HVAC system. It’s a long-term decision, so you have to approach the issue of maintenance vs. replacement carefully. Here are points to remember when it’s time to upgrade your heating and air system.

Understanding New vs. Old Systems

The more an HVAC system ages, the less energy-efficient it becomes. Even if you bought the most state-of-the-art system 20 years ago, it's nowhere near as energy-efficient as a new system. If you have a furnace that's several decades old, it's a good idea to replace the air conditioner at the same time, so that both units have a long future ahead.

Gas furnaces are one of the most energy efficient home comfort solutions you can have installed because they can operate at the highest energy efficiency ratings of any furnace type. But you should know that not all gas furnaces are created equal, and choosing the right one will make a big difference in how effectively you heat your home and the amount of money you save on your energy bill.
