Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Homer Glen

Given the temperatures in Homer Glen, there are a number 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 be left with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically encounters 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 use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 sudden 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 colder months or cool air in the summer 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

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