Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Racine

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Racine, there are a variety 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 quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically 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 system. 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 sudden cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
