Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Excelsior Springs09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Excelsior Springs, there are a host 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 fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Excelsior Springs or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern section of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 surprise 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 chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top 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 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 indoors. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
