Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for McMurray

Given the temperatures in McMurray, there are a number 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in McMurray or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally use 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 greatest 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 ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer 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 go with an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run 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 state. Not sure what is best for you?
