Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Bloomington09/30/2015Given the weather in Bloomington, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Bloomington or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
