Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Mount Pleasant09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Mount Pleasant, 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 quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Mount Pleasant or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 ensure 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 high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
