Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Manassas09/30/2015Given the weather in Manassas, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Manassas or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a bit. Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather 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 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 area. Not sure what is right for you?
