Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Minocqua09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Minocqua, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider 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 environment. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Minocqua or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top 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 run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
