Given the weather in Chelan and Wenatchee, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and basic explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Chelan and Wenatchee or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern section of North America typically has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically 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 greatest 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 certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority.
If we talk about the weather 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
