Given the temperatures in Phoenix, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Phoenix or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
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 normally employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps take care of 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 a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit.
- Air handlers make sure 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 high priority.
If we talk about the environments 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
