Given the temperatures in Omaha, 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 basic explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Omaha or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern section 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 manage 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 certain that 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 top priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle 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 understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
