Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Pinellas County09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Pinellas County, 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 fast 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 analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Pinellas County or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 most 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 sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 weather 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 inside. Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
