Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Huntsville09/30/2015Given the temperatures 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 consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick 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 determine what will work best for the current climate in Huntsville or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern region of North America typically encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually use 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit. 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
