Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Alice

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Alice, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast 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 figure out what will work best for the current climate in Alice or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 surprise cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler 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 go with 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 inside.

Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
