Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Stuart09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Stuart, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Stuart or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America typically encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 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 cooler 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 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
