Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Olathe09/30/2015Given the environment in Olathe, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a 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 basic breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Olathe or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America typically has warmer weather for the majority 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 manage 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 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 colder months or cool air in the hotter 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home. Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
