Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Ballwin and St. Charles

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Ballwin and St. Charles, there are a variety 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 risk ending up 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 determine what will work best for the current climate in Ballwin and St. Charles or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 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 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 big priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to select 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 in your home.

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