Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for York09/30/2015Given the environment in York, 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 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 simple explanation of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in York or a new climate if you plan on relocating. Warmer climates The southern area of North America usually has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually use 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a few degrees. 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 warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority. Colder climates If we talk about the environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
