When I needed to replace my home’s furnace, the HVAC contractor recommended that I install central air conditioning at the same time. I initially suspected he was simply trying to upsell me and make more money for his company. However, I looked into it and he was being honest. Manufacturers recommend installing the furnace and air conditioner together because they share certain components. In order for each unit to achieve maximum efficiency, new and clean working parts are necessary. I had not planned on investing in a cooling system. I live in the northeastern part of the country and the winter weather is the priority. We typically endure six to eight months of below freezing temperatures. By the time the milder weather arrives, I’m ready to shut down the furnace and get out from under the excessive utility bills. I look forward to opening the windows and getting fresh air. Unfortunately, there’s lots of pollen, bugs and air pollution that gets inside. I notice the buildup of dust on the window sills. There’s also a security risk from having windows open. Although our summer season is fairly short, the temperature is frequently up in the mid eighties and the humidity is downright brutal. I got an estimate for the cost of implementing central air conditioning at the same time, and it was reasonable. I went ahead with the project, and I am extremely happy with the benefits of having a whole-home cooling system. There are advantages to keeping the windows shut, adjusting the thermostat and enjoying a perfectly cool house. The system circulates and filters the air, helping to keep the house clean and fresh feeling and smelling.
