Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Saint Peters09/30/2015Given the weather in Saint Peters, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Saint Peters or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 ensure 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 high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
