Given the temperatures in Cape Coral, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Cape Coral or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize 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 an unexpected 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 colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
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?
