Given the temperatures in Katy, there are a variety 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 hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Katy or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal 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 package. 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 sudden cold front that cools things off a tad.
- 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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 inside.
Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
