Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Denver09/30/2015Given the environment in Denver, 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 replacing your 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 weather. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Denver or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern area of North America normally encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made 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 greatest 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 make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with 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 throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
