Given the temperatures in Phoenix, there are a number 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly 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 Phoenix or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern section of North America normally lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally 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 bit.
- Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with 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 in your home.
Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
