Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Mount Pleasant

Given the environment 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 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 totally  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Mount Pleasant or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally 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 best 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 sure 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 top 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 operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
