Given the environment in Florissant, 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 fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Florissant or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern region of North America usually encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage 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 greatest 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 make sure 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 big priority.
If we talk about the weather 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
