Given the weather in Mount Pleasant, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Mount Pleasant or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad.
- 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 hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
