Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Ballwin09/30/2015Given the environment in Ballwin, there are a variety 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 end up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Ballwin or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 best 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 certain that 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 high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
