Question DetailsAsked on 8/29/2015

If I have to replace my AC, do I have to replace both it and the heating unit? Both are 10 years old.

Both my AC and heater were installed together in my 10 year old house. I have been advised that if one goes out, the other has to be replaced too. I wanted to know if this was true.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

If your "heating unit" is an air handler, yes as the indoor is in that unit and should be matched with the new outdoor unit.

If your "heating unit" is a gas furnace, then you could keep it, but will still need a ne indorr coil,which is a separate piece of equipment. Your furnace could limit you in getting the highest efficiency AC system, unless replaced.
