Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Shelby

Given the environment in Shelby, there are a number 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 quick 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 simple analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Shelby or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • 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 big 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 manage 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 inside.

Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
