I have a 40 year old American Standard Air natural gas furnace and a 20 year old air conditioning unit and coil (no idea what brand/manufacturer).

They both still run, but i have unreasonably high heating/cooling bills.
And if replacing is the best option, what are some system recommendations?

If your intent is to save energy then the answer is yes. Minimum standards have greatly improved over the last 30 years and by simply replacing with new of a minimum standard you will be saving energy. If you were to choose high efficiency equipment you would save even more energy.
