When Is It Time to Replace My Indoor or Outdoor Unit?

If you own an indoor and outdoor unit, you may be wondering when the best time is to replace either of them. The answer varies for everyone, as it depends on a number of factors--including but not limited to amount of use, how long it has been since you last replaced either one, and most importantly, if one is being replaced. The general answer is if you are replacing one, you must replace them both.  

You may be surprised to learn you are expected to replace both, even if you feel only one is in serious need to replacement. While it may seem like a hassle, and an expensive one at that, it is an essential part of keeping both units running smoothly.

The following are reasons to change your indoor and outdoor units at the same time:

  • Matching systems work more cohesively, as they are geared to perform better when they are of the same standard, level, and system.
  • Matching systems, such as an HVAC unit and air handler, will save you money in the long run.
  • Technology is ever-changing, and you need to catch up to what the latest and greatest are offering.
  • New units will guarantee new warranties, so you will be ahead of the curve in case anything happens to break down.
