    AC/Furnace question

    I live in an apartment. If the AC and blower are being replaced and the furnace is a fedders from 1973. Would replacing the actual furnace help with the cost of the AC during the summer?

    Yes, if you go with a furnace that has either a high eff blower motor or var speed blower motor paired with a high eff matching condenser and evap coil.

    If not replacing furnace which I think you should consider based on age alone, then stick with a good basic 13 SEER AC or HP condenser with matching evap coil.

    IMO

    Confused

    Apparently something is very wrong because our thermostat is set at 71 but its 77 in here. They will not be replacing the furnace. Could an old furnace cause an outrageous electric bill.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Probably more from an old inefficient condenser, then from the indoor fan.
