Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Williamsport

Given the environment in Williamsport, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about 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 weather.

Here’s a quick and basic analysis of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Williamsport or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America usually encounters warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically utilize 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad.
  • Air handlers make sure 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 handle 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 indoors.

Being sure 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 ideal for you?
