Replacing Your Furnace: What You Need to Know

As an experienced HVAC technician, I have seen many homeowners fall victim to the misconception that when replacing their furnace, they must also replace their air conditioning system. This is simply not true. While it is always recommended to replace both parts of the air conditioner at the same time, it is not necessary to do so when replacing the furnace. When replacing your furnace, it is important to have the evaporator and coils of your air conditioning system checked for any issues or leaks. This is especially important if your furnace is older and has been causing problems.

However, if your air conditioning unit was replaced within the last few years, there is no need to replace it again. While it may seem like a good idea to replace both systems at once, it is not always a plausible solution. In fact, in some cases, it can cause more problems than it solves. The first thing to consider when facing an issue with your furnace is whether it needs to be repaired or replaced. If you do decide to replace it, make sure to also replace the air conditioning system at the same time. This ensures that all parts are compatible and will work together efficiently. However, if you only replace the furnace and not the entire air conditioning unit, you run the risk of compatibility issues.

This can lead to reduced efficiency and even more problems down the line. When it comes to replacing heating and cooling systems, it can seem like a daunting task. But with the help of experienced technicians, like those at our Denver HVAC company, it doesn't have to be. We can evaluate your situation and help you determine if a simple repair or a full replacement is necessary.
