Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Corpus Christi

Given the temperatures in Corpus Christi, 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 quick decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Corpus Christi or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America typically encounters warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ 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 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 warmer 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 chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.

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