Given the temperatures in Shreveport, 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 fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Shreveport or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for most 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 handle 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 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 certain that 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.
If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
