Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Auburn09/30/2015Given the weather in Auburn, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about 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 wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Auburn or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected 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 chilly months or cool air in the summer 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 cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work 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 gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
