Given the weather in Fort Lauderdale, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left 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 Fort Lauderdale or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
- Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the hotter 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 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 run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
