Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Alice

Given the temperatures in Alice, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Alice or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America usually encounters 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 usually employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • Air handlers make sure 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 big priority.

Colder climates

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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
