Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Troy

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Troy, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Troy or a new climate if you plan on going elsewhere.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal 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 sudden cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • 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 hotter 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to manage 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 understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is right for you?
