Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Asheville09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Asheville, there are a number 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 fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Asheville or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern region of North America normally lives with warmer weather for a great deal 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 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 surprise cold front that cools things off a bit. Air handlers make certain that 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 top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly 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 area. Not sure what is best for you?
