Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for McMurray

September 30, 2015

Given the weather 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 consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in McMurray or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America normally has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made 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 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 ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the weather 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

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