Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Winchester09/30/2015Given the weather in Winchester, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick 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 easy breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Winchester or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area 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 employ heat pumps and air handlers. Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one system. 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 bit. Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler 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 go with 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 inside. 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 state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
