Expert Furnace and AC Installation

Furnace and central air conditioners both have an average lifespan of approximately 15 years. Even if your current unit is only around 10 years old, replacing it can provide major benefits. This is especially true if you currently only have a medium-efficient furnace or AC. In this case, upgrading to a high-efficiency unit will help save you lots of money on heating or cooling your home. Opting for a medium-efficiency unit is not necessarily a bad choice if you’re on a tighter budget, but it will lead to higher heating or cooling bills.

When choosing a new HVAC unit, the first step is to have a technician determine what size of furnace or AC will work best for your home. Installing a properly sized unit is essential for keeping your energy bills lower and your home more comfortable. If your new unit is too big or too small, it will use more energy than necessary and not work that effectively. A properly sized unit will also have fewer issues and last longer than an undersized or oversized unit.

Once you know what size of unit you need, you’ll then want to carefully consider the specific type and model you want to install. A single-stage furnace or AC will cost you less upfront, but you may want to consider paying more for a two-stage or variable-speed unit instead. Either a two-stage or variable-speed unit will ensure your home stays more consistently comfortable by preventing the temperature from fluctuating as much. The amount of additional money you’ll save with a two-stage or variable-speed unit will also typically offset the higher initial cost in well under 10 years.

In addition to the age of your furnace or AC, these other issues can signal that it’s time for a replacement:
  • Cooling or heating costs keep increasing
  • Home never stays quite warm or cool enough
  • HVAC system runs almost constantly
  • Furnace or AC never runs for more than a few minutes at a time
  • Furnace or AC keeps breaking down or needs extremely costly repairs
