Given the weather in Front Royal, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Front Royal or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern region of North America typically 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 usually employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps handle 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
- 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 big 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
