Most times, if something is working, you don’t want to replace it. It doesn't make sense to spend extra money when you don’t have to. When it comes to HVAC systems, however, there are multiple advantages of replacing your furnace and air conditioner together, even if one is still working fine.

If either your furnace or your air conditioner is on the way out and you can't decide if you want to replace both systems or just one, let the professionals at Modern Air Solutions help. Below you will find some of the greatest benefits of installing a matched HVAC system as well as some tips to help you decide what you should do.

Better Match = Better Performance

When creating and testing new air conditioners and furnaces, many companies design certain models to work together. While you can install a different system and still have it work, you won’t get the same performance ability as a matched system.

With a matched system, all of the components of the HVAC system work together more smoothly. This means increased efficiency. reliability and lower energy bills. While the initial cost of installing a matched system may be more, a matched system will save you more in the long run.

Newer Technology

When both of your systems are the same age and technologically advanced, you can get more from your system. However, if one system is old and the other is new, they will likely experience performance issues because the components don’t work as well together. Your entire system will experience decreased efficiency and become less reliable. The old system can also cause your new system to experience wear and tear more quickly.

HVAC technology is always progressing. Systems keep getting more and more efficient, new software continually becomes available to give you more control over your system, and other features are developed to improve the air quality in your home. When you buy a new matched system, Modern Air Solutions can install additional features to provide you with more comfort and control over your HVAC system. Some of these features include home zoning, programmable thermostats, and remote monitoring systems.

Upgrade the Size Together

Having Modern Air Solutions install a new matched system for you is the perfect time to adjust the size of your systems. Getting the right sized unit is very important. If you get a system that is too small, it will run constantly. On the other hand, if you get a system that is too large, it will continually startup and shutdown and cause wear and tear on the parts. When you contact Modern Air Solutions for a consultation, we will help you determine what unit size will work best for your home and family.

Deciding If You Should Replace Them Together

If both of your systems are on their way out, it is a no brainer to replace them together. Yet, if one is still working and the other is breaking down, how do you decide what to do? There are three main aspects to consider when deciding.

Age - If your system is about ten years or older, and/or has not received proper over the years, it may only last another year or two. In this case, you will want to consider replacing your system. If it is only a few years old, on the other hand, you can still get plenty of use out of it.

Repairs - Think back over the last few years. How often has your system needed repairs? If the number of repairs is increasing, your system may be headed toward a total system breakdown. You can also analyze your utility bills over the past few years. If they are increasing, your current system may be experiencing decreased efficiency. If this is your situation, you will likely save more in the long run by installing a new matched system.
