Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Springfield09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Springfield, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Springfield or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 bit. Air handlers make certain that 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 environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
