Given the environment in Chadron, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick 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 decide what will work best for the current climate in Chadron or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern section of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 a surprise cold front that cools things off a bit.
- 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 high priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle 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 in your home.
Being sure 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 right for you?
