There's one main difference between these two pieces of cooling equipment. Unlike AC units, which need a furnace to provide year-round comfort, heat pumps can both heat and cool a home. Note, however, that they sometimes need to be paired with an electric heater in areas that see temperatures below freezing.
In the Greeley area, we recommend getting your HVAC equipment serviced before the start of each season. In other words, AC maintenance should be done at the beginning of spring, while furnace tune-ups are best done in the fall.
Aside from replacing your air conditioner with a more efficient one, you can try installing blackout curtains, replacing old insulation, and sealing windows. Installing a whole-house or ceiling fan can also help reduce sticker shock. If you live in the Eaton area, we’re happy to provide a home performance evaluation.
Your typical furnace has a lifespan of roughly 20 years. How often the unit is used and the load put on it can impact this lifespan. Projected lifespan can be extended via annual preventive maintenance.
If you want to avoid leaves and debris inside your AC unit, you can purchase a cover through your brand’s dealer. This is not necessary for heat pumps, however.
Though your AC unit might work after a coolant refill, that’s a band-aid fix for a much larger problem. Because air conditioners are closed systems, any loss in refrigerant means there’s a leak somewhere. With many older systems using environmentally hazardous substances like R-410—which is now banned in new units and only available via reclamation—getting these refills can end up being more expensive than buying a new air conditioner that uses safer, lower-cost refrigerants.
A typical furnace replacement costs between $2000 and $4500. This number applies to an average-sized home. Though this may be steep, many HVAC companies offer discounts if you replace the AC unit at the same time. The cost of the equipment varies by brand, efficiency, equipped technology, and unit size.
A new furnace installation will take a skilled contractor between four and six hours. If you’re also replacing or installing an AC unit, the amount of time needed doubles. Most installations can be turned around the same day. If major rerouting of plumbing or electrical is required, this timeframe can be extended to days or a week.
