Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Augusta09/30/2015Given the environment in Augusta, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Augusta or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern region of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. 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 a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees. 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 hotter 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Ensuring 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 best for you?
