Given the temperatures in Columbus, there are a host of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to consider buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and be left with a system that doesn’t completely address all of the needs that come with the environment.
Here’s a quick and easy breakdown of how to decide what will work best for the current climate in Columbus or a new climate if you plan on moving.
The southern section of North America usually lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates normally utilize 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit.
- 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 summer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a big priority.
If we talk about the environments 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 frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can operate regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable indoors.
Making sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
