Given the temperatures in Tucson, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast 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 easy breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Tucson or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern region of North America normally encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage 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 tad.
- Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top 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 work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
