Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Macon

Given the environment in Macon, 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 buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a hasty decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

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

Warmer climates

The southern area of North America normally encounters warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is right for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a surprise 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 chilly months or cool air in the summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big 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 handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting chilly more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run 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 region. Not sure what is best for you?
