FAQs About HVAC Unit Replacement in Florida

Your HVAC system plays a crucial role in providing comfort and maintaining indoor air quality in your home. When it comes to furnace or air conditioning replacement, you may have several questions in mind. Below we will address some of the most frequently asked questions about HVAC replacement in Florida that will help you make an informed decision

While your current furnace or air conditioner may be functioning well, there are important reasons to consider a replacement, especially if your system is over 12 years old. Upgrading to a newer unit offers improved efficiency, lower utility bills, and better indoor air quality. Additionally, older systems are more prone to breakdowns, leading to costly repairs. If your unit is older, frequently breaking down and you’re experiencing high energy bills, it is a good idea to consider replacing your furnace or air conditioner.

Most HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10-20 years on average. New heating and cooling units can last 15-20 years, whereas the older HVAC systems last around 10-12 years. We recommend scheduling professional maintenance and regular tune-ups to keep your new HVAC system running efficiently and reaching a lifespan of up to 20 years

Repairing or replacing your HVAC system depends on several factors. If your system is old and requires frequent expensive repairs, and you’re experiencing high energy bills due to an inefficient HVAC unit, it may be more cost-effective to replace your unit. Our professionals at Tri County Air will properly evaluate your system and recommend the right option to fit your budget.

Replacing all HVAC components at the same time depends on the performance and age of your current system. We generally recommend replacing both heating and cooling units to ensure the optimal performance and compatibility of your HVAC system.

Determining the appropriate size of your new heating and cooling system installation requires professional load calculation, which factors in the size of your home, insulation, the number of occupants, and more. This ensures the new system can be matched to the specifications of your home and doesn’t work harder than it has to.

When replacing your furnace or air conditioner, keep the size of your space and the dimensions of your new equipment in mind.

The warranty coverage for a new HVAC system varies depending on the manufacturer and specific model.
