Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Abilene09/30/2015Given the environment in Abilene, there are a number 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Abilene or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern region of North America usually has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 bit. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle 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 inside. 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 area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
