Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Magnolia

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Magnolia, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Magnolia or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the weather 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

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?
