Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Derby

September 30, 2015

Given the environment in Derby, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think about replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t wholly  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and easy explanation of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Derby or a new climate if you plan on relocating.

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 ideal for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 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 top priority.

Colder climates

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 manage your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting cold 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 gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
