Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Topeka09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Topeka, 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 wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Topeka or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees. 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose 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. Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
