Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Circleville

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Circleville, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider purchasing a 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 weather.

Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Circleville or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically encounters 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 utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 an unexpected cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • 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 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 cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Being sure 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 ideal for you?
