Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Greencastle09/30/2015Given the weather in Greencastle, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about 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 weather. Here’s a quick and basic breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Greencastle or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern region of North America usually encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually 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 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a top priority. Colder climates If we talk about the climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with 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 indoors. Being 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?
