Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for West Jefferson

Given the environment in West Jefferson, there are a number of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and end up with a system that doesn’t totally  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 West Jefferson or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates usually use heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 best energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise 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 hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high 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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Making sure 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?
