Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Locust09/30/2015Given the environment in Locust, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Locust or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one package. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit. Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
