Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Muskogee09/30/2015Given the weather in Muskogee, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate. Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Muskogee or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America normally lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally use heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit. Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
