Given the environment in Sandpoint, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Sandpoint or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 sudden 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 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 manage 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.
Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
