Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Florissant

Given the environment in Florissant, there are a host 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 hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Florissant or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section 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 use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the weather 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work 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 region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
