Your house's year-round comfort depends largely on whether your heating and A/C systems are really working officially – meaning they keep your home cool in the summertime and warm in the winter. When it's time to update your heating or cooling system, you may think it's better to simply update the component that has caused you trouble. But what several people do not realize is that replacing both systems at once can really save you both money and energy in the long run, and the first thing to consider when deciding whether you should update your system is how long you've had it, and in general, a gas furnace will last 15-20 years while a central a/c system will last 12-15 years. A look at your utility bills may also indicate it is time to update your a/c unit or gas furnace. This can indicate that your unit is really working overtime and needs to be updated if your bills have significantly increased. An advantage of installing a new gas furnace and a/c system at the same time is that it's more energy efficient! heating and A/C systems nowadays are highly efficient and use much less energy than older systems. It will be easier to ensure a similar performance level between all the units if it is matched, but you can't fully benefit from a new gas furnace if you have an old air conditioner and a brand new gas furnace. As a final note, it may really be more cost-effective to update both the AC and gas furnace at the same time, because proper components might have to be updated twice if they are not updated simultaneously. In other words, you will pay twice for the same material and labor. In addition, if your units are located in hard-to-reach areas, it makes more sense to update them both at the same time, as installation labor is usually higher in these areas.
