Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Excelsior Springs

September 30, 2015

Given the weather 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and simple 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 region of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • 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 top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates 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 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 state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
