Comfort

If you’re reading this article, there is likely a pretty good chance that your furnace or air conditioner is nearing the end of its lifespan. Unfortunately, time and wear will eventually take their toll on even the best HVAC products. The good news is that considerable advances have been made within the industry. This means that furnaces and air conditioners are performing better and more efficiently than ever before.

While conducting your research – looking at ratings and reviews, specs and sales prices you may have noticed the proliferation of HVAC bundles –that is, furnaces and air conditioners sold together. So, if you’ve been wondering why that is, or if you’re curious about whether there are benefits to purchasing both units at the same time, we’ve compiled a list of reasons why you should indeed purchase a complete HVAC system, rather than just replacing a single unit at a time.

The benefits of replacing your furnace and air conditioner together include:

Scheduling

When you purchase a complete system, the provider only needs one day to install the units. If you schedule a midday installation, you only need to take time off from work or rearrange your schedule once. You won’t have to anticipate going through the process all over again the following year or even the following season.

Cost

Buying your furnace and air conditioner from the same supplier at the same time is often more affordable.  There will be only one installation fee, and oftentimes, you can receive a substantial discount. If you have purchased both your air conditioning and heating from the same supplier you may also save money on servicing deals and extended warranties.

Seasonal Considerations

If you have both the heating and air conditioning units replaced at the same time, you are in a position to plan the installation of the equipment out of season when you aren’t dependent on heating or cooling. This will save you considerable inconvenience, especially if you have elderly or vulnerable people at home.

Utilities

If your air conditioning and heating are replaced at once it means that your electrical supply only needs to be down for this one occasion. This will be better for your refrigerators and freezers … and your computers and TVs, of course.

There is a lot to be said for replacing both of your HVAC units at one time. In fact, we periodically offer some outstanding deals that allow you to get a furnace and an air conditioner for a considerably lower price. Contact us today for more information!
