Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Madera09/30/2015Given the environment in Madera, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Madera or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 surprise 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 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 climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
