You’ve been down this road before: the air conditioner makes loud banging or whirring noises, emits warm air, or fails to turn on. If annual maintenance and repairs don’t solve the problems, you’ll likely need to replace the entire unit. But isn’t the air conditioner connected to the furnace?
Read this guide if you’re wondering if it’s possible to replace the air conditioning system without replacing the heater.
Replacing Just the AC System
Many homeowners might not know their cooling system does not interfere with their heating system. Air conditioners have unique parts and components, like evaporator coils, condensers, and air filters, to function. These parts do not interrupt the furnace’s performance.
In other words, you can replace the air conditioner without replacing the furnace without issue. Replacing each system allows HVAC technicians to carefully inspect, analyze, and install the AC unit perfect for your home.
When to Replace Both Systems
That does not mean you cannot replace air conditioners and furnaces at the same time. Some people prefer replacing the furnace and air conditioner together to save time. More commonly, if you have an older home with aging heating and cooling systems, replacing the entire HVAC system with high-efficient units improves energy efficiency and lowers utility bills.
However, this also comes at a higher cost than replacing each individually.
