Given the weather in New Castle, 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 replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally address all of the needs that come with the weather.
Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in New Castle or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.
The southern area of North America typically lives with warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps manage both your cooling and heating needs in one unit. 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 surprise 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 colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Ensuring your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is ideal for you?
