Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Lincoln

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Lincoln, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty 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 easy explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Lincoln or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 few degrees.
  • 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 hotter 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 go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

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