Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for South Beloit and Belvidere09/30/2015Given the weather in South Beloit and Belvidere, there are a host 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 fast 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 breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in South Beloit and Belvidere or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern region of North America usually lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 best 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 certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Being sure 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 best for you?
