Given the environment in Crystal and Twin Cities, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Crystal and Twin Cities or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern region of North America usually lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 a sudden 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
