Also keep in mind that your ductwork may not be able to support the airflow of a larger system. The same goes for heating systems. While an over-sized furnace will quickly heat your home, it uses more fuel and causes greater temperature swings.

While it may seem less expensive to replace the outdoor unit on an older system, the likelihood is that it will cost your more money in the long run.[/vc_column_text][dfd_spacer screen_wide_resolution=”1280″ screen_wide_spacer_size=”50″ screen_normal_resolution=”1024″ screen_tablet_resolution=”800″ screen_mobile_resolution=”480″ screen_normal_spacer_size=”50″ screen_tablet_spacer_size=”50″ screen_mobile_spacer_size=”50″][vc_column_text]Do I need to have my ductwork replaced?[/vc_column_text][dfd_spacer screen_wide_resolution=”1280″ screen_wide_spacer_size=”25″ screen_normal_resolution=”1024″ screen_tablet_resolution=”800″ screen_mobile_resolution=”480″ screen_normal_spacer_size=”25″ screen_tablet_spacer_size=”25″ screen_mobile_spacer_size=”25″][vc_column_text]According to industry statistics, most homes have poorly installed ductwork.
