Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Indian River County09/30/2015Given the weather in Indian River County, 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 hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Indian River County or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually has 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 usually employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 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 ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the hotter 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
