Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Zelienople

Given the temperatures in Zelienople, 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 completely  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

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

Warmer climates

The southern region of North America normally lives with warmer weather for the majority of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is made for that climate. These warmer climates typically employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps take care of both your cooling and heating needs in one package. 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 cooler 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 climates in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to cover 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.

Being sure your home is comfortable all year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your state. Not sure what is ideal for you?
