Heating and cooling split systems are composed of an indoor evaporator coil or is often referred to as an air handler an outdoor condensing unit. Both of these components are designed to work in conjunction of each other, and replacing just one of these components but not the other can result in a mistake that could cost you.
Matching systems ensure that the heating and cooling unit will operate at peak performance, efficiently, increased comfort and the estimated life cycle of the system. When you install one component, but not the other it can result in the system prematurely breaking down in regards to one or both of the components resulting in the need for the likelihood of needing more service than usual.
Additionally, whenever a new condensing unit is being matched with an old evaporator there is the possibility of the components using different refrigerants. A matched system will perform as designed, and the replacement of just part of the system will most likely end up costing you more over time than by outright purchasing a matched system in the first place. The possibilities of breakdowns, components wearing out and the frequent need for repairs will run over the costs associated with having purchased both of the components out right.
Furthermore, mismatching is not always an option that will work with heating and cooling systems. However, when mismatching is a possibility, a mismatched heating and cooling system will likely underperform on the hottest summer days and the coldest winter nights.
Today’s, modern heating and cooling systems are much more efficient than older systems are. When a new condenser is installed with an existing evaporator it can end up having serious negative consequences, which include the possibility of total compressor failure in the worst case and the possibility of other problems also. In fact, the possibility for total compressor failure actually increases by as much as 45% during the first year after installation of a new condenser in conjunction with an older evaporator.
Additionally, aged evaporator coils can possibly fail whenever a new compressor pumps refrigerant through the aged coils. Leaks can become quite a possibility and frequent repairs will be a necessity that will cost you more and more over time. To further compound the risks being taken, most manufacturers will not entertain the warranty when a new condenser is installed with an aged compressor. In the event the new condenser fails due to it being a mismatched system, the manufacturer may not entertain the warranty whatsoever.
Additionally, heating and cooling systems require matching for an often-overlooked component, the ducting. As an example, if your home requires a 3-ton heating and cooling system installed, you will need a ducting system that will be able to deliver 1,200 CFM, which is the amount that is delivered by a 3-ton system. An inadequate ducting system can cost you anywhere between as much as 40% in energy losses resulting in a very inefficient heating and cooling system that will cost you quite a bit month after month.
