HVAC System Replacement FAQs
Do I Need to Replace My Current Ductwork?
In some cases, no. The air distribution system plays a big role in how your HVAC unit functions. We will evaluate the condition of your ductwork during your replacement estimate. Ductwork should be properly sealed and insulated and should match the size of your new system. If those three things check out, you can keep your current ductwork.
Should I Replace all my HVAC Equipment at the Same Time?
It depends on which components you need to be replaced. All parts of an HVAC system must work together properly to maintain ideal energy efficiency and performance. When replacing multiple parts, make sure they work together efficiently. Try to purchase air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, and other components from the same manufacturer.
When is the Best time to Replace my HVAC System?
In most cases, fall is the prime time to buy a new system. Savings are more common during that time, and months with mild weather are usually slower for HVAC work. You’re more likely to get everything installed when you’d like it.
Will I need a New Thermostat?
Yes. If you replace your HVAC system, you will need a new thermostat. Newer heating and cooling systems have smart thermostats that allow you to control your system from an app. Others allow pre-programming to match your schedule to save energy (and money).
