Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Grand Prairie

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Grand Prairie, there are a number 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 quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Grand Prairie or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally 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 employ 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected 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 chilly months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the weather 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
