Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Vancouver09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Vancouver, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through replacing your 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 climate. Here’s a quick and simple explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Vancouver or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps handle 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a tad. 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 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside. Being 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 ideal for you?
