Given the weather in Cottonwood, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Cottonwood or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern region 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 usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps handle 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 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 colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run 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?
