When you rely on an AC system to keep you cool during the summer like we do in Texas, it can be disconcerting when something goes wrong. No one wants to think about replacing their AC system as it can be extremely expensive, but when yours has reached the end of its life, you may not have any other option. When it comes to replace your AC system, there is an outdoor unit as well as a unit that is inside your home. Absolute P&M Servicesis here to talk about replacing these units and whether or not you need to replace both at the same time.
Do You Need to Replace Both the Inside & Outside Unit at the Same Time?
If you have a central air conditioning system to keep you cool, you have both an indoor and outdoor unit to get the job done. Most AC systems have a warranty that falls within a 5-10 year range. If you are having issues with your outdoor unit and it is covered under the warranty, you have hit the jackpot. If not, you may want to think about replacing the inside unit as well for a few different reasons.
– Save Money: No one wants to face AC replacement. However, sometimes there is no way around replacing it when it stops working and is outside the warranty window. If your outdoor unit needs to be replaced, you can almost guarantee that the indoor unit is not going to last much longer either. When you replace them both together, you will get a better deal that replacing them separately. If you absolutely can’t afford to do both units, you better start saving up, because your indoor unit is likely not far behind.
– AC Energy Efficiency: One of the biggest benefits that comes from replacing your AC units is the efficiency. You won’t get the same efficiency if you aren’t replacing both of the units at the same time.
– Refrigerants have Changed: Refrigerant is something that you have to have in an AC system that works to cool the air. Over the years, refrigerants are improved to make them more environmentally friendly. In the past year, there has been a change and now rather than using R22 refrigerant, R410A is used instead.
– Compatibility: Indoor and outdoor AC units are designed to work together. Having two units that aren’t working together well could cause your utility bills to skyrocket. You will also not get the cooling results you are looking for.
