Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Marshalltown09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Marshalltown, there are a variety 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 fast 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 simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Marshalltown or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad. Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
