Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for East Peoria

Given the environment in East Peoria, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new 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 climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically lives with warmer weather for the majority 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 manage 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 a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • Air handlers ensure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.

Colder climates

If we talk about the climates 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 operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

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?
