Choosing the Right Heating and Air Conditioning System for Middletown

Given the temperatures in Middletown, 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 purchasing a heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a fast decision and be left with a system that doesn’t totally  address all of the needs that come with the weather.

Here’s a quick and easy analysis of how to figure out what will work best for the current climate in Middletown or a new climate if you plan on moving.

Warmer climates

The southern section of North America typically 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 normally employ heat pumps and air handlers.

  • Heat pumps handle 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 most energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a few degrees.
  • 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.

Colder climates

If we talk about the environments 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 cold more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can work regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.

Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to research the heating and air conditioning needs of your region. Not sure what is right for you?
