Given the environment in Kearney, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left 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 Kearney or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern area of North America typically has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates normally employ 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise 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 cooler months or cool air in the warmer 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
