Given the temperatures 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Genoa or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern section 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 typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of 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 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the weather 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 in your home.
Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
