Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Phoenix09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Phoenix, there are a host 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Phoenix or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern region of North America typically encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps manage 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 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big 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 manage 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 inside. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
