Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Jefferson City

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Jefferson City, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America usually 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 usually 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

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 work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
