Given the weather in Stuart, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick 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 explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Stuart or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern region of North America typically has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. 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 tad.
- Air handlers make certain that 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.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 inside.
Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
