Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for West Palm Beach09/30/2015Given the temperatures in West Palm Beach, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending 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 determine what will work best for the current climate in West Palm Beach or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the warmer 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 select 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 in your home. Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
