Do I Need to Install my Indoor and Outdoor AC Units Together?

Even though your outdoor unit is prone to more damage because of its exposure to the environment, your indoor unit should be replaced along with it to avoid compromising the overall system operation.

Two Peas in a Pod

The two parts units of your AC system are designed to work together. Installing matched AC units will enhance both performance and energy efficiency. Once one unit has broken, attempting to match a new part like a compressor or condenser to a decaying evaporator or air handler could result in more energy expense each month.

The Age Difference does Matter

If you replace your indoor and outdoor units at different times, they may not function as well as they would if they had been installed together. If either your indoor or outdoor unit fails, it’s likely the other one is also on its way out.

A Refreshing Happily Ever After

The reality is that it’s difficult to keep track of all your home systems all the time. Even the most organized homeowners might not recall when one part has been replaced, the shelf life of the remaining parts, or even how long a device has been in their home. In cases like this, when separate units are directly dependent upon each other, you can save yourself the guessing game by addressing them together.
