Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Chadron09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Chadron, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Chadron or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 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 choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is best for you?
