There are approximately 2800 cooling hours and 1260 heating hours per year in our general area. As a general guide, the average Houston home would need 2.2 times more air conditioning than heating over a calendar year. So roughly translated, at any given time from today until March or April, the heating system might be necessary. Houstonians have gone back and forth for decades about whether or not heating systems are necessary in our climate.
The humid climate in Houston and the surroundings bring many days in the spring and autumn and even winter during which home heating may not be necessary. However, on these same days, a dehumidifier, whole house air filter or fresh air ventilation could make a huge difference in your home comfort. The pollen from certain Texas plants can strongly influence what type of air filter your family and your a/c system need.
Choosing the right company will make a huge impact on you satisfaction and purchase of a new a/c and heating system. Air conditioning and heating systems are made of components or units, and these can be interchanged to provide many possible combinations of performance and efficiency. Replacement of the heating component at the same time as the cooling component is very important because the furnace provides airflow for the a/c and heat. It is the most used appliance in the home and with the replacement of the heating system at the same time, you will be guaranteed energy savings.
