This depends on the type and condition of your existing system. One issue is often the size of the glycol reservoir on your existing system, if too small it can cause cycling issues of the system where the compressors will cycle on and off very quickly due to the lack of glycol in the system and sudden temperature swings. This can greatly reduce the life of the compressors.
