Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Dallas09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Dallas, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Dallas or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area 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 handle both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 sudden 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 chilly 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 environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid 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 research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
