Given the environment in Manassas, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Manassas or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern region of North America normally lives with warmer weather for the majority 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 handle 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 an unexpected 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 high priority.
If we talk about the environments 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
Being 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 right for you?
