Should You Replace Your Furnace at the Same Time as the AC?

Before deciding to replace your furnace, determine its age. If the furnace isn’t too old, you should consider postponing its replacement. But when replacing your air conditioning unit, it’s generally a good idea to replace your furnace as well.

This is because your new air conditioning unit most likely has greater efficiency with a SEER beyond 16. Old furnaces won’t contribute to the overall efficiency of your new unit. Replacing your furnace at the same time as replacing your AC will be a better option in the long-run, as you can get better AC performance.

Keep in mind that a furnace replacement at the same time as an air conditioner and coil replacement will save you money in the long run.
