People often wonder if they should replace an indoor unit when swapping out an outdoor one. The answer is not always clear cut, but usually it is a good idea for many reasons.
First of all, you can update and match your system unit for ideal efficiency and performance. Both air conditioners and heat pump outdoor units are designed to run with their indoor counterpart best. It is important to consider how well your system ill run if you don’t replace both units.
Over the years, the efficiency ratings have improved greatly with updated models. This means that the unit you buy will work best with its indoor counterpart and will be the most efficient in operation.
The designs for the indoor blower coils have significantly advanced and are a lot more efficient in filtering as well as operating sound levels.
All equipment ages so if your outdoor unit is 12 years old, most likely the indoor unit is as well. It has likely undergone the same breakdown over time and at the very least should be inspected and carefully considered for replacement.
Remember, all new equipment comes with a new product warranty. When you change your indoor unit as well, you can rest assured the whole system is covered and if anything goes wrong, that will also be covered.
It is important to consider the overall picture. When you replace the indoor unit with the outdoor one, you will likely get better heating and cooling efficiencies as well as increased reliability. It may cost more eventually, but may be the right choice when you add up all the benefits.
