Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Plover Posted September 30, 2015 Given the environment in Plover, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Plover or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 few degrees. Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 climates 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
