Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Genoa09/30/2015Given the weather in Genoa, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a 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 environment. Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Genoa or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden 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 top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
