Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Kutztown

September 30, 2015

Given the weather in Kutztown, there are a number 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 quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally has warmer weather for most of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually use 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 best 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 big 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.

Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to gain more knowledge about the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is best for you?
