Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Monroe

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Monroe, there are a variety 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 quick decision and risk ending up 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 determine what will work best for the current climate in Monroe or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority 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 manage both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 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 summer 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
