Given the environment in Huntsville, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Huntsville or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. 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 a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad.
- 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
