Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Safford09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Safford, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Safford or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually encounters 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 handle 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 few degrees. 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 top 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 cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
