Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for West Palm Beach09/30/2015Given the weather in West Palm Beach, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in West Palm Beach or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 best 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 make certain that 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 high 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 manage 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 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?
