Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Macon

Given the temperatures in Macon, there are a variety 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 wholly  address all of the needs that come with the climate.

Here’s a quick and basic explanation 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 region of North America normally has 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 use 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 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 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 choose an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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.

Ensuring your home is comfortable year-round means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is best for you?
