When replacing the outdoor unit, should the indoor unit also be replaced?Of course we think you should also replace your indoor system, but this is why: All outdoor cooling systems have a matching indoor unit that they are intended to work with to ensure efficient performance. When they aren’t paired with the other unit as a total system, efficiency may be affected. As with many products, advancements have brought about newer, more efficient ways of doing things. Heating and cooling systems are no different. These improvements most importantly include better heating and cooling efficiency, but also involve improved air handling, filtering and noise pollution reduction to name a few. Heating and cooling systems that are more than 10-15 years old typically need to be replaced. Not only do they feature outdated technology, but they are also less efficient than newer models. Getting a new indoor unit at the same time means you’ll have a matched system to provide you with better comfort and efficiency for years to come.
