Your house's year-round comfort depends largely on whether your heating and cooling systems are now working respectfully – meaning they keep your home cool in the summertime and warm in the winter, and when it's time to replace your heating or cooling system, you may think it's better to simply replace the component that's causing you trouble. But what various people don't realize is that replacing both systems at once can actually save you both money and energy in the long run. The first thing to consider when deciding whether you should replace your plan is how long you have had it. In general, a heating system will last 15-20 years while a central A/C plan will last 12-15 years. A look at your energy bills may also indicate it is time to replace your A/C unit or heating system. This can indicate that your unit is now working overtime and needs to be replaced if your bills have significantly increased. An advantage of installing a new heating system and A/C plan at the same time is that it's more energy efficient, however heating and cooling systems today are highly efficient and use much less energy than older systems. It will be easier to ensure a similar performance level between all the equipment if it is matched. You can't fully benefit from a new heating system if you have an aged a/c and a brand up-to-date heating system. As a final note, it may actually be more cost-effective to replace both the AC and heating system at the same time, because components might have to be replaced twice if they are not replaced simultaneously. In other words, you will spend my money twice for the same material and labor. In addition, if your units are located in hard-to-reach areas, it makes more sense to replace them both at the same time, as installation labor is usually higher in these areas.
