Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Carpentersville

Given the environment in Carpentersville, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 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 summer 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 choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle 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 indoors.

Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
