Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Show Low09/30/2015Given the environment in Show Low, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Show Low or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern region of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad. Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
