Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Bountiful09/30/2015Given the environment in Bountiful, 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 hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Bountiful or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern region 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 normally use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 a sudden 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 high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle 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 in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
