Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Moline

Given the weather in Moline, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Moline or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 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.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
