Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Cape Coral09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Cape Coral, there are a variety 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 totally address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Cape Coral or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a few degrees. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 in your home. Ensuring 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 right for you?
