Replacing Your Furnace and Air Conditioner at the Same Time
While it may seem early to think about air conditioner season, and late for installing a furnace, March is a great time of year to consider replacing your furnace and air conditioner at the same time. By installing these pieces outside of peak season, you can take advantage of sales and you won’t be running into supply issues that we experience during the busier times. When these units are in high demand our customers can end up waiting over a month for a unit they want today. But if you plan ahead you don’t have that problem! If you have older equipment and have been thinking about getting them replaced before they break down, you should think about getting it done now. There are also many benefits to installing them at the same time.
1. Save Money on the Installation
While you are paying more all at once due to paying for two pieces of equipment instead of one, you save money overall by getting the furnace and air conditioner installed at the same time. When the furnace and air conditioners are installed separately you have to pay for two separate services. This means you are paying for an install crew to come out to your house twice. But when you book it together, the technician is already there and it is just a matter of installing a second piece of equipment. It is actually easier for technicians to do these together than having to match up two pieces that weren’t installed at the same time. Plus, there are often deals offered to customers if they install both at the same time depending on what promotions the company is offering.
2. Peace of Mind
There’s nothing worse than installing one HVAC component and then having to replace a different one because of a breakdown. If you replace your furnace and air conditioner at the same time, you could have a decade or more of no issues and won’t have to worry about replacing parts or installing a new one for quite some time. Plus, your equipment is under warranty for a while, the length of warranty varies depending on the brand and company that installed it. Doyle offers our customers a 10-year parts and labour warranty when we install the furnace or A/C, which means for most future repairs, you don’t pay for anything. Homeownership can be expensive, so to know that most issues on your furnace and air conditioner are covered is one less thing to worry about.
3. Clear snow from vents
When making sure you are heating your home safely, it is also important to check around the outside of your home for any safety concerns. During the winter the exhaust vents can become blocked by ice or snow. The exhaust vent is where carbon monoxide leaves the house. If the exhaust vent is blocked then a build-up of carbon monoxide can happen and it will back up into the house. So, after a snowfall, or ice storm, and periodically throughout the winter, check that your vents are clear from any debris. This will keep the carbon monoxide venting outdoors.
4. Energy Efficiency
When installing a furnace and air conditioner at the same time that is energy star certified you are going to save on your energy bills. These new units require less power to do the same job as the older units. So, you will be saving money and helping the environment. If you only install one new unit, either a furnace or A/C, you will not be maximizing your savings potential. This is because one of the older units still requires a lot of energy to do the same job.
Getting your furnace and air conditioner installed at the same time makes life easier for our customers, so in our mind, it’s the best choice. Talk to one of our heating experts to see what is the best option for you and your family.
