Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Saint Louis

Given the environment in Saint Louis, there are a variety 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 quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Saint Louis or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually lives with 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 utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 a sudden 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 cooler months or cool air in the summer 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Being 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 best for you?
