Given the temperatures in Odessa, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Odessa or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected 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 chilly months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the environments 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 operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
