Given the weather in Albuquerque, 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 risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Albuquerque or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern section of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right 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 best 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 certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
