Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Moline09/30/2015Given the weather in Moline, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider 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 completely address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Moline or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 best 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 colder 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 climates 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 work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring 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 best for you?
