Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Greensburg Posted September 30, 2015 Given the environment in Greensburg, there are a host 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 quick 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 basic breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Greensburg or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 few degrees. 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 big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
