Given the environment in Macon, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider replacing your heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending up 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 figure out what will work best for the current climate in Macon or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern section of North America usually lives with 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 handle 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 a surprise cold front that cools things off a tad.
- Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in chilly months or cool air in the hotter months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to choose an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable inside.
Making sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
