Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Menomonie and western Wisconsin

Given the temperatures in Menomonie and western Wisconsin, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and end up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the environment.

Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Menomonie and western Wisconsin or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America usually has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • 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 hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.

Colder climates

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 inside.

Ensuring your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
