Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Lake Worth

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Lake Worth, 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 replacing your 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 weather.

Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Lake Worth or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 greatest 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 big 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 run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

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