Given the temperatures in Manassas, there are a variety 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 hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Manassas or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern section of North America normally lives with warmer weather for the majority 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 take care of 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Ensuring 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?
