6 Reasons You Shouldn’t Partially Replace Your Central AC System


September 11, 2018


Central
air conditioning systems are one of the most expensive investments
you can make in your home. A recent
study

found
that homeowners spend between $3,740 and $7,203 on air conditioning
purchases and installation. The expense of a central AC system drives
many homeowners to explore affordable alternatives to the traditional
air conditioning system, leading to a variety of good and bad
solutions.

The
traditional central AC system consists of an indoor and outdoor unit
designed to operate in unison. Both halves are meant to be replaced
at the same time with completely new units. If the outdoor unit fails
before the indoor unit, replacing only the outdoor unit seems like a
cost-effective move. However, a partial replacement can have serious
consequences for the rest of your central AC system.
