Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Omaha

Given the weather in Omaha, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Omaha or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically lives with warmer weather for a great deal 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 unit. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a bit.
  • Air handlers ensure 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 go with 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 in your home.

Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
