Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Northwest Arkansas09/30/2015Given the environment in Northwest Arkansas, there are a host 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 wholly address all of the needs that come with the environment. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Northwest Arkansas or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad. Air handlers make certain that 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 high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 in your home. Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
