At Addison Smith Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, we definitely recommend a late-season furnace tune-up if you didn’t get one earlier in the year. That’s because your furnace and air conditioner work together and a furnace tune-up will actually help your air conditioner as well. Your cooling system is combined with your central heating system because they share important parts as well as the same ductwork for distributing conditioned air throughout your home.

Furnaces and Air Conditioners Share Important Parts

To help you understand how your air conditioner and furnace work, here’s a little breakdown of the basic components:

Indoor air handler components:

  • Air circulating blower fan
  • Air filter
  • Refrigerant expansion valve and refrigerant lines
  • Evaporator coil
  • Condensate drain system

Outdoor air conditioner cabinet has these components:

  • Compressor
  • Condenser coil
  • Coil fan
  • Refrigerant lines and valves

When your air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and your system will have a longer life. When the outside components of a system are replaced, it’s important to replace the indoor evaporator coil to match the capacity of the new components.
