Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Rocky Mount09/30/2015Given the environment in Rocky Mount, 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 be left with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the weather. Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Rocky Mount or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere. Warmer climates The southern area of North America typically has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ 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 most 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 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors. Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
