Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Carpentersville

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Carpentersville, there are a host 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 be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 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 ensure 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.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select 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 indoors.

Ensuring 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 right for you?
