Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Saint Marys

Given the temperatures in Saint Marys, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through 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 environment.

Here’s a quick and simple analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Saint Marys or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically lives with 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 use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps manage 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 greatest 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 sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly 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 environments in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to manage 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 all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
