Given the environment in Scottsboro, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Scottsboro or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern region of North America typically has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage 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 a sudden cold front that cools things off a tad.
- Air handlers make sure 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 big priority.
If we talk about the environments 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 indoors.
Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
