Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Manassas Park

Given the weather in Manassas Park, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal 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 unit. 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 tad.
  • Air handlers make certain that 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 high priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate 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 ideal for you?
