Diagnosing a Faulty AC and Furnace
#1 Air Conditioner Won't Work
If the air conditioner won't work even after inspection and repairs, then it may be time to replace the unit. You won't need to replace the furnace when replacing the air conditioner, and the same goes for when you need to replace the furnace. There are multiple modern air conditioners to choose from, so you can upgrade your unit as well.
#2 Furnace Won't Work
Similarly, when the furnace won't work, and you've exhausted all efforts to repair it, it may be better to replace the entire heating system instead. Unlike in the case of a blown blower motor, which can easily be replaced, some components of the furnace cannot be replaced, and you will need to install a new unit to maintain an efficient furnace system in your home.
#3 Faulty Compressor or Heat Exchanger
Both your air conditioner and furnace work with several components to create hot or cold air that flows into the space. Air conditioners rely on the compressor to provide cool air, and when the compressor fails, it is costlier to replace the component than the entire HVAC system as a whole.
The same goes for the heat exchanger of your furnace. Whether you have an electric or gas furnace, a cracked heat exchanger may leak carbon monoxide into the space. Most licensed HVAC experts will recommend you to replace the unit entirely.
How to Replace a Furnace and Air Conditioner: A Step-by-step Guide
While you can technically do the HVAC replacement yourself, we recommend having your air conditioner and furnace system installed by professionals. Heating and cooling systems are complex, and there can be many factors that can cause the heating system or the cooling system to malfunction.
In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of replacing your air conditioner and furnace unit with assistance from our licensed professionals at Luce Aircon. Working with our HVAC technicians will give you a stress-free experience in replacing your heating and cooling system.
Step 1: Discuss Cost Factors, and Ideal Unit
First, give us a call to schedule a discussion meeting with our team. The Luce Aircon team is knowledgeable in all things HVAC, so you can be assured that we are well-versed in the requirements of different air conditioning systems. Discuss a budget for your new air conditioner and furnace, as well as the AC unit combo costs in installing a furnace and AC.
Step 2: House Inspection
The next step is the house inspection to properly measure, and note down the details of the existing furnace and AC unit. The technician should check your air handler, and know whether it is possible to install your new heating and cooling system given the existing specifications of your current HVAC system.
Step 3: Purchasing
Our services include purchasing assistance, where our team will purchase the required unit and components for you. Because one team handles the entire process, you can save money on components that do not need to be replaced.
Step 4: Installations
Our team will then install the furnace and AC unit in your home. Depending on the type of HVAC system you're installing in the home, this process may take a few days up to a few weeks to accomplish.
Step 5: Cleaning and Maintenance
The last step is cleaning and maintenance. You can now enjoy your new HVAC system, and our team will handle the routine cleaning and maintenance schedule for you so you can keep a comfortable temperature in your home all year round.
How Much Does it Cost to Replace an HVAC System?
Depending on the model and brand of HVAC system, you may be looking at a bill between $5,000 to $10,000 for a central air conditioning system. There are several factors considered in the price, such as the square foot of the space to be heated or cooled, the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating, the labor costs, and more.
