Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Moline

September 30, 2015

Given 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Moline or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
