Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Ontario09/30/2015Given the temperatures in Ontario, 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 end up 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 decide what will work best for the current climate in Ontario or a new climate if you plan on moving. Warmer climates The southern section of North America normally lives with warmer weather for a great deal 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 package. 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 surprise cold front that cools things off a tad. Air handlers make certain that 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 environments 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 run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
