Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Aurora09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Aurora, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Aurora or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. 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 typically employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a few degrees. 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 hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments 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 operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
