Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Williamsport

September 30, 2015

Given the temperatures in Williamsport, 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 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 environment.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America typically encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates normally use 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 greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be an unexpected cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • Air handlers make certain that the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in cooler months or cool air in the warmer 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 select an air conditioner and furnace to manage 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 understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is ideal for you?
